Was Teddy Roosevelt Batman? That's how I'm misconstruing this interesting post at the American President's blog. They suggest several similarities between T.R. and the Dark Knight. In addition, I would list the following parallels, some fake some real, can you tell which is which?:
1). Both studied forms of karate
2). Both walked the streets at night fighting crime
3). Both were the 26th President of the United States
4). Both went to Ivy League schools
5). Both had their first loves die young
6). Both were friends with William Taft
