Mitt Romney's airplane window gaffe shows his head is in the clouds

From his totally inappropriate comments on the embassy crisis in Libya, to his Monty Burns-esque “f you” to 47 percent of the country and even to his Al Jolson act at a Univision sponsored event, the Romney campaign appears to be run by Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. It seems all Mittie Rich can do is completely shut his mouth and he may just squeeze by with a minor loss, but the millionaire mormon mannequin just can't seem to stop drinking the gaffeine.

This past Friday Ann Romney’s plane was temporarily grounded after the main cabin filled with smoke in an apparent small electrical fire, which thankfully caused no injuries. But while Anne’s plane was experiencing a small electrical fire, it seems that her husband’s brain was undergoing a massive electrical fire. The bumbling Republican presidential candidate seems to believe that the air at 30,000 feet is just as fresh and breathable as it is at ground level.

“I appreciate the fact that she is on the ground, safe and sound. And I don’t think she knows just how worried some of us were,” Romney said. “When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous. And she was choking and rubbing her eyes. Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot and copilot to make a safe landing in Denver. But she’s safe and sound.”

We can now literally say that Romney has his head in the clouds.

One doesn't have to have a nobel prize in science to know that opening windows on aircrafts is strictly forbidden because the cabins are pressurized to fly safely at an altitude of tens of thousand feet. Opening a window in an airplane would seriously sicken the passengers and crew.

No word yet on if whether Mitt Romney wishes that passengers on battleships can open screen doors.

You dopes. And bigots.
The reporter who "broke" the "story" is 100% sure it was a joke. Dopes.

Absolutely hilarious. Romney is beyond out-of-touch. This man stands no chance whatsoever in November. Good stuff, Michael.

That was one of the most biased, poorly written articles I have ever read.

Mitt Romney’s Magic Mormon Underwear protects him from the evils of the world including socialism, illegal immigrants, homosexuals and taxes on his wealth. Can these sacred garments also make it rain down enough cash for a victory in this race since well over 90% of public offices are bought in our country by Big Money?
