Mitt Romney vs. The Airplane

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past day, Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann Romney, was on a plane bound for Los Angeles when there was a malfunction inside the cabin. Mr. Romney, obviously fearful for his wife’s safety, posed this question (paraphrasing, of course): “Why the hell can’t we roll down windows on our airplanes?”

And, like me, I’m sure you immediately dropped to the ground, hyperventilating from laughter, cursing what God hath brought upon The United States of America in 2012. Here’s the full quote from Mr. Romney himself:

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.

But, instead of joining the far-too-easy Snark Parade that is following this story around like a cloud of doom, I’ll redirect you HERE to an article by James Fallows, a writer for The Atlantic.

I decided to post the FULL article by James Fallows on PAGE 2. It’s for all of those who are not sure how airplane-cabins work.

  1. Instead of focusing on the fact that, if elected, he would be stripping most people of their rights, their money and their dignity, we should really look forward to what he would obviously be giving us: convertible airplanes.

    • “And I don’t see why our nuclear submarines can not have screen doors. The smell of the ocean is beautiful, especially when its calm waters are filling your lungs!”

      Someone needs to upgrade Romney’s software, or at least take him to a shop. His current programming is so full of bugs.
