From Reporter Who Covered It: Romney Was Joking About Airplane Windows
Ashley Parker of the New York Times says Mitt Romney was joking when he wondered why airplanes don’t have windows that open.
When we asked Parker this morning whether it seemed as if Romney made the mark in jest, she left no doubt. “Romney was joking,” she e-mailed. Parker told us that while the pool report didn’t explicitly indicate that Romney was joking, it was self-evident that he was. “The pool report provided the full transcript of his comments on Ann’s plane scare,” she said, “and it was clear from the context that he was not being serious.”
