DARK KNIGHT: Top Rightwing Movie of the Decade™

CCHQ’s coveted Top Rightwing Movie of the Decade™ award goes to…roll drums…

BATMAN: The Dark Knight.

Playboys: Bush and Wayne

George W. Bush, for good or ill, has become emblematic of all things “rightwing” this last decade.  Thus our choice.

Feared and despised.

These eight reasons make Dark Knight a shoe-in for this coveted award:

1. Batman was unwilling to appease the terrorists– just like Bush.

2. Batman was accused of wiretapping– just like Bush.

3. Batman tortures the joker for information in the interrogation room– just like Bush is accused of doing.

4. Batman invaded another country illegally– just like Bush is accused of doing.

5. Batman was accused of causing more violence by waging war on the terrorists– just like Bush.

6. The citizens of Gotham turned on their protector– just like Americans did to Bush.

7. Batman was willing to endure hatred of Gotham’s citizens to do what he believed is right– just like Bush.

8. Batman is now hunted for his “crimes”– just like Dems wanted to impeach Bush for his “crimes.”

Honorable mentions to Return of the King, The Incredibles, and Gran Torino.
