Mr. Mittiotic

Today's special word is "Mittiotic." Pretty much anything Mitt Romney says is stupid, but on occasion, he rises to special heights of Mittiocy.  The thing is, as simple as his mind is, his Mittiocies tend to have layers of complexity. For example, everyone is jumping on his statement, ""You can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open." People rightly point out that his wish for roll-down windows on a plane, in case of a fire, is moronic (or MorRomnic).  But fewer folks have seized on the alarming idea that, when there's a fire, you want to find oxygen.  I suspect Mitt was napping in science class the day they showed what happens when you feed oxygen to a fire. (Or, perhaps, his school didn't believe in atoms and molecules.)  Some might give him a pass on this, saying he obviously meant "air," and since we do require oxygen.  But politics is a game of nuance, and of exact language.  I shudder to think what a man who spews such Mittiocies would do if put in charge.
