Wall Street Journal: Batman is Bush

There seems to me no question that the Batman film “The Dark Knight,” currently breaking every box office record in history, is at some level a paean of praise to the fortitude and moral courage that has been shown by George W. Bush in this time of terror and war. Like W, Batman is vilified and despised for confronting terrorists in the only terms they understand. Like W, Batman sometimes has to push the boundaries of civil rights to deal with an emergency, certain that he will re-establish those boundaries when the emergency is past.

I got this from Curt Purcell at The Groovy Age of Horror, who calls it “So stupid I refuse to link to it.”

Nothing’s too stupid to link to, I always say. Not even this shit. Though it’s goddamned close.
