The paranoia of the conservative mind

Since the conservative mind can’t envision that some people might prefer a society where conservatives are NOT on top of the food-chain, they frantically look for conspiracies that aim to undermine the status quo:

“Limbaugh: A lot of people are gonna see the movie, and it’s a lot of brain-dead people, entertainment, the pop culture crowd, and they’re gonna hear Bane in the movie and they’re gonna associate Bain.

Limbaugh: You may think it’s ridiculous, I’m just telling you this is the kind of stuff the Obama team is lining up. The kind of people who would draw this comparison are the kind of people that they are campaigning to. These are the kind of people that they are attempting to appeal to.

Perspective: A compelling personal history, to be sure. But the bottom line is this: Bane entered the Batman storyline in 1993. That’s more than a decade before Romney first ran for president in 2007.”

So people who consume pop culture are brain dead and only by priming those with certaini keywords can someone defeat a conservative candidate…
