Surely he's joking

This is all over the internets:

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 dunno; i want to hear the audio on this. I mean, he was at an event, and Dennis Miller was going to speak. So i'm really hoping he was making a joke. Because - forget being president - anyone who doesn't understand why you can't open windows on a plane is to dumb to, well, breathe.

Update: Confirmed that he was kidding. Thank god.

Fixed the link; thanks.
