The Most Desperate Campaign in History

No, Obama Has a New Hero
Somebody pinch me. Slap me. Throw a bucket of cold water on me, because I really need to wake up from this nightmare.

Actually, it's a nightmare like no other I've ever had, because none of the nightmares I've had in my life has ever had me giggling like I am now, with this one. It was one thing thing to watch Barack's futile flailing at presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney like Arnold Stang trying to fend off a beach bully, but the campaign has reached a new level of hysteria. And I mean hysteria of the wildly humorous vein.

The Washington Examiner is reporting tonight  that part of Team Obama's strategy along the Bain Capital attacks line will be to somehow try to capitalize (I hate it when Marxists try to capitalize on anything) on the release of the final Batman movie this Friday. In case you're unfamiliar with the story line of the movie, Batman will be facing his arch nemesis in a final showdown. The creep's name? Swallow your beverage first, then continue, I'll wait...Bane.

That's right, the Democrat machine is actually gearing up to use the movie release of The Dark Knight Rises as a tool to further hammer Mitt Romney on his Bain Capital days. According to Paul Bedard of the Examiner:
"Bane" is the terrorist in the new movie who drives the caped crusader out of semi-retirement in the final Batman movie. Democrats, who believe they have Romney on the ropes over the president's assault on his leadership at Bain Capital, said the comparisons are too rich to ignore."It has been observed that movies can reflect the national mood," said Democratic advisor and former Clinton aide Christopher Lehane. "Whether it is spelled Bain and being put out by the Obama campaign or Bane and being out by Hollywood, the narratives are similar: a highly intelligent villain with offshore interests and a past both are seeking to cover up who had a powerful father and is set on pillaging society," he added.
On the one hand, this is so sad that it's funny, at least to people who haven't been completely corrupted by their government goodies. On the other hand, it is alarming because it reveals just how stupid these progressives believe the electorate to be. (They have good reason to believe that, incidentally, since they have been working feverishly over the past four decades to dumb us down in the public schools).

It would be expected for late night television hosts to engage in the "Bane-Bain" wordplay for a laugh, but for the President of the United States of America to even go near this is both unfortunate and frightening. But the entire affair does have a silver lining in that it shows just how desperate Obama is leading into the fall and ultimately the election. From the frantic pleas to donors for more cash, to the repeated attempts to bash Romney over Bain Capital in opposition to leaders of his own party, this is the culmination of a campaign in a tailspin.

It couldn't look any better from my vantage point.
