Willard's Latest Stupid Idea

When I first read this, I thought it was some kind of satire. I really didn't believe that Willard could really be stupid enough to actually suggest this (in the wake of his wife being on a flight on Friday that had a minor cabin fire):
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.

That's right, he really said that you should be able to open the windows on a commercial airplane. Which would allow you to breathe for, oh, maybe three seconds before explosive decompression sucked you and fellow passengers out of the plane.
Well, physics is just another science with a liberal bias, so Willard is against it. Just what we need running the country.

Once again, Willard shows that he is not the brightest bulb in the republican lamp. In fact, I would say he is burned out!

We could use windows in submarines, too.

Please. Mittens is reminiscing ... back ... back ... back to the day when the rabble stayed on the ground and the chosen rich were able to take to the air like Icarus.

Perhaps flying in opulence in something like this?

After all, if you're only flying a couple hundred meters off the ground then of course you can keep the windows open ...
