Tire Bulge from Pothole, SA says "Its fine, No problem"

I hit a big pothole over the weekend which created a bulge on the sidewall of my right rear tire. I have the tire/wheel warranty and had a similar problem replaced last year on a front tire.

I took the tire in today to the dealer and my SA said, "That is normal, they won't replace that under warranty unless air is escaping. I have a bunch of those on my tires, nothing to worry about."

Is he serious?! I am going to take it to another dealership to get it replaced I guess. I hit a road hazard which damaged my tire, making it unsafe to drive on. That is the whole reason to get the warranty. Why on earth would that not be covered?

Makes me think the SA is a complete moron.
