You guys, the Mitt Romney airplane windows thing from yesterday was a joke. It was obviously a joke. It had all the earmarks of a Mitt Romney joke: It was about inappropriate subject matter (his wife's recent brush with death), it wasn't funny, and the language was tortured. That's Romney's humor for you.

This is another example of people being overly eager to underestimate Romney's intelligence, and that's dangerous. Of course the man understands why you can't roll down airplane windows. Of course he knows that providing more oxygen to a fire will cause the fire to grow. He's not an idiot, and treating him like he is an idiot is risky business. Let's focus on his real mistakes and stop trying to turn him into a caricature of himself. That's how mistakes are made.
