This video was made by Elijah's mother, Kia McClain. In her own words:

Sorry I completely lost it while attempting to ask my son the question. I was LITERALLY crying I was laughing so hard!! Note, my son is ONLY IN 5th grade and Romney is running for president.... The funniest thing is that he actually thought he was dumb for not remembering who Romney was, like oh DUH off tape.
I like the way she posted the video under the category of "Comedy". Although, one could also view it as a tragedy since the man who asks the idiotic question is running for the highest office in the land.

So, Mitt, please follow us below the fleur-de-kos and allow this fifth grader to explain why windows don't open on airplanes.

ON EDIT: Rec list! Wow! Thanks, Elijah and Kia!

Also, here's some good advice for everyone:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
