Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I’ve heard just enough about Rush Limbaugh’s review of “The Dark Knight Rises” to know that he was correct in one sense but always his viewpoint falls short and can’t get up again.  I’ll give you the real and factual information on the movie.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Yes, the main villain is Bane, and yes, in the sub-sub plot Bane (aka Bain Capital to Limbaugh) manipulates the You People into a rebellion against the Me-My Generation  to achieve his own personal goal of total destruction of the city.  All possessions and riches belonging to the Me-My Generation—including their rich abodes-- are confiscated and redistributed, and the richest and most evil of the M-M Gen are executed, along with many not so richest and most evil.

So, indeed Christopher Nolan does endow the movie with a populist slant and I must admit it was cathartic as I watched the 1% dragged away and having justice meted out by a whacko in a black robe, who was a dead ringer for a young and extremely good-looking Antonin Scalia.  

But where Limbaugh suffers his critical disconnect is claiming that Nolan intended film to be a roman à clef about Romney and Bain Capital representing the 1% pillaging the 99%. In the film, as I just wrote, Bane is leading the 99% in his self-generated revolution.  For Limbaugh to be accurate and factually correct, ok, well he never is but if he WAS, it would be the M-M Gen snatching everything from the You People and putting THEM to death.

I won’t give away how it all ends, except the supposed trilogy finale ends with a cliff hanger as to whether or not Bane will show his tax returns to Batman.  Tune in next sequel : same Bat time...well, you know the rest.
