Holy Copycat Batman! Campaign dubs Obama-Biden 'Dynamic Duo'

It's already started. Getting a jump on the anticipated hype coming this week around the last Batman movie, "Dark Knight Rises," the Obama-Biden campaign has decided who they want their leading men to play: Batman and Robin.

In a tweet sent out Sunday, the campaign showed President Obama and Vice President Biden high-fiving under the headline "Dynamic Duo."

We reported on Monday that some Democrats and foes of Mitt Romney were looking to use the movie and its villain against the Republican candidate. It's an easy move because the bad guy has a name that sounds just like the main target of Obama and Biden, Bain Capital, the firm Romney used to run. The villain's name: "Bane."

The movie could provide a confusing symbolism, however, because there are rumors that Batman doesn't make it in the end, a story line based on a David Letterman interview with Catwoman actress Anne Hathaway.

A hat tip to our friend Jeryl Bier who first pointed out the Dynamic Duo picture to Secrets and tied our story and the picture together in a nice post.
