I’m sorry I haven’t been more active lately, but I have a few things going on. The first is that I’ve been tapped to be a creative writer for the Serpent’s Tongue game, so I’m spending a lot of my free time working on that stuff. The second is that I am presently in the process of getting a new job – I have the offer, but I have to pass the ridiculously long background checks for it to remain on the table.
Two things, both Batman-related:
1. Rush Limbaugh – my favorite Republican idiot talkshow host – decided he, too, wanted to jump on the Mitt Romney Bane/Bain discussion. What I find funny is that he did it without a sense of humor. Most people are approaching this with a sense of humor. Hell, even the Obama people have hinted it’s a funny coincidence, on the humorous side of politics (which actually impressed me so I laughed). Anyway, Limbaugh took it seriously, and some people made fun of him in return. Of course, some of Rush’s douchebaggy fans are now bagging on everyone with a sense of humor, because they have none (like that dude JohnK in the comments). It’s really too bad, because the satire and humor of the entire thing is lost on these sourpusses. The rest of us can laugh, because Rush Limbaugh is a running joke himself.
2. Some fool in Aurora, Colorado went all Bain in a midnight showing of Dark Knight Rises. Killed 12 people. Booby-trapped his apartment. What a whackjob. But that’s about all I’ll say about that – no name dropping from me. Fucker doesn’t deserve to be recognized by the media, but lo-and-behold, ABC rushes to identify him to everyone. So he’s literally famous now. >_<
