Unlike Mitt, Ann Romney is terrified of clouds and forced the pilot to land the plane.

Ann Romney's plane makes emergency landing in Colorado after it fills with smoke. Mirrors conspicuously absent

The mirrors are there. This incident is a reflection of Mitt's campaign. While she's going down in smoke, his campaign is going up in smoke.

2012-09-21 06:48:19 PM
As a dude in SW Montana on a campus that has been covered in wildfire smoke for the past month or so, I see this as nothing more than Ann trying to pander to the lower classes.

"See", she says while feigning empathy, "I know what it's like to suffer, to breathe bad air like you people. Why just last week, my private plane filled with smoke".

Go fark yourself, lady, and the horse you danced in on; I ain't falling for it.

According to the article, the plane was a Challenger not a Gulfstream. According to Wikipedia the Challenger 600 goes for about $25 Million. Again according to Wikipedia, the Gulfstream 5 (G5) goes for about $40 Million. BBJ start at about $47 Million.

Something like the Challenger, and even the G5 would be better than a big Boeing, because the Challenger is small enough to land in some smaller municipal airports, where with a big Boeing, you end up having to fly into a bigger airport and drive further to your campaign stop.

The biggest plane our local airport can accomodate is a G5, and that's only because one of the big fish in this town's brother in law was a congressman who pulled the necessary strings to get the exception, otherwise, it would be prop planes only.

Serious you're an idiot if you want something bad to happen to her. She is a blithering idiot but so what? It wouldn't even help politically if something did happen. In fact if something was bad to happen to her it would make Romney more likely to be president. I am not saying you should want something bad to happen to someone for political reason but at least that would make some sort of sense.

Obama would make a touching and classy statement of sympathy that reverberated through the hearts of (most) Americans.
Mitt would try to blame Obama for it, and screw up, leaving the electorate with the impression that he's an even bigger jerk then they already thought he was.
And 40% of Americans would still vote for Mitt

I couldnt help myself... I had to post a comment in a thread where they were discussing how current polls are skewing results because they are polling more democrats than republicans, and that you need to poll an equal amount of republicans and democrats to get an accurate unbiased poll. So I explained how polls work in the realm of science, in a friendly hey im a republican too kind of way.

The post never showed up, they screened and deleted it before it ever hit the page.
