Rush Limbaugh's Batman Conspiracy: I Never Said Villain Was Created For 2012 Campaign (AUDIO)

Posted: Updated:

Rush Limbaugh sought to clarify his controversial allegations about the political motives behind Batman on Wednesday.

He previously wondered if it was merely "accidental" that the villain in "Dark Knight Rises" is named Bane like Mitt Romney's Bain Capital. He speculated that many movie goers would associate the two. "You may think it's ridiculous," Limbaugh said. "I'm just telling you this is the kind of stuff the Obama team is lining up."

On Wednesday, he said the reaction to his Batman comments was even greater than the backlash against his remarks about Sandra Fluke. He denied reports that he had a "conspiracy theory" about the movie.

"I never said that the villain was created by the comic book character creator to be part of the 2012 campaign," Limbaugh claimed. "I said that Democrats were going to use it, which they are." He alleged that Jon Stewart was already "harping" on the parallel.

Then, he mused that the Batman movies are "thematically... conservative in terms of right and wrong." He referred to a point that he made on Tuesday. "Batman is Romney," Limbaugh claimed. "The good guy is Romney."
