Hilarious Reactions to Romney's Airplane Windows Comment

It started with this:

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.

Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot and copilot to make a safe landing in Denver. But she’s safe and sound.

And got worse from there:

If airplane windows don't roll down, how does the pilot stick his head out the window to make sure his dog is okay? http://t.co/...

Roll down the window of the passenger to your right if they are unable to do so themselves.
