At least a writer at New York Magazine thinks it was. The incident, in which Mitt Romney and his wife were confronted (and had a punch thrown at them) on an airplane, took place after Romney asked a passenger in front of him to raise his seat back during takeoff.
Apparently, the passenger confronting Romney was really funny:
We’re still curious, though, about the vague description of what transpired. What do “physically violent” and “physical contact” really mean? Was it punching, pushing, grabbing, etc.? Or perhaps it was simply too horrible to repeat: hair tousling.
What wit it takes to write for New York Magazine these days.
