The Second Coming

OF  George W. Bush:
Romney’s wife, Ann, was in attendance, and the candidate spoke of the concern he had for her when her plane had to make an emergency landing Friday en route to Santa Monica because of an electrical  malfunction.

“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.”

I'm still waiting for someone to explain what, exactly, disqualified Rick Perry.

Yes, why can't we roll down the airplane windows?

On the bright side, if you can't open the plane's windows to let in oxygen, the fire goes out. It's win-win! (Of course, next time she might choose on of those planes with the windows that go up and down.)

My favorite line was from this ABC News report:
Romney and the other passengers were instructed to put their seat belts on during the emergency landing.

Seat belts for a landing! Musta been serious.

Don't worry Father. We can both go. Mitt Romney just jumped out wearing my backpack.

Mitt should make it one of his election planks. "When I am president, I'll require all planes to have windows that open!"

That'll convince the Undecideds!

I stand in admiration of you quick-minded humorists. My mouth is still hanging open, swinging loosely at the jaw hinge.

Is it possible that Mitt, like Sherlock Holmes, is concerned not to fill up the finite room of his mind with data that do not aid in his concentration on the Great Issues, like...

After installing windows that open in airplanes, Romney will do the same for submarines.

@Fear...

Yeah, windows. Right after he mandates the screen doors.
