WAIT! I was wrong!

Laura of Unlikely Explanations let me know that Mitt was joking when he 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.

She gave me a link to a NY Magazine article that quoted folks who were actually there when Romney made the comment.  Thanks, Laura.

So I wanted to correct the record.  Believe it or not, I do try to be accurate.  Unless I’m making stuff up that is.  This time it was supposed to be a news scoop.  My bad.

But now I have a different take on this.  I think the real story is that within one week, Mitt Romney actually told TWO jokes — he made another funny at the UN just yesterday.

Mitt told two jokes within a week.  Wow.  That’s news.
