This is why the terrorists hate America. This is why we can’t have nice things. It’s because idiotic people like Mitt Romney aspire to hold positions of power, and instead of telling these clowns to have a seat, we encourage and entertain their BS like they really know what they’re doing.

The worst part of all this is that Mitt’s actually a Harvard-educated lawyer. But all of his years of schooling and education haven’t helped Mitt pick up a lick of common sense.

Romney put an Andre the Giant-sized foot in his mouth yet again while speaking at a Beverly Hills fundraiser, ThinkProgress reports.

He was attempting to explain the experience his wife, Ann, had when her plane was unexpectedly grounded due to an electrical fire.

“When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly,” he told the L.A. Times. “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.”

Suddenly, Sarah Palin isn’t seeming so bad.

Yoo hoo, Mittens. The plane is flying at blistering speeds, soaring at altitudes of tens of thousands of feet and the cabin is pressurized.

Just “opening” the damn windows is not an option, unless you want to unleash hurricane-like winds in the plane’s cabin.

Also, at those altitudes, there’s not much oxygen for people to breathe. Hence why those oxygen masks drop down when something goes wrong on the plane.

So unless you want people’s brains to suffocate from a lack of oxygen, you’d better keep those windows shut tight.

But Mitt, despite all his years of education, doesn’t get that. He doesn’t see why we can’t just roll the windows down and a get a whiff of that good ol’ fresh air.

And this genius wants to be our commander in chief?

Even George “Dubya” Bush is back home in Texas like:
