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.
