Romney Staffers Publish Sad Victory Website by Mistake

On Tuesday, President Barack Obama was re-elected, which means, of course, that Mitt Romney lost. But if Romney had won, the president-elect would have needed a website. It makes sense that his staffers would have prepared one. But if the fool who accidentally published it wasn't already out of a job, well, he should be fired.

According to Political Wire, the Romney transition site was briefly live on Tuesday evening. Look at Romney's optimistic gaze into the "smaller, simpler, smarter" future of America. Put a few hundred thousand votes in Romney's column and that's the website we'd all be looking at today. Beyond the inspirational quotes from "President-Elect Romney," Political Wire also snagged a screenshot of the transition's "Join the Administration" page.

Man, it's odd to stare an alternate reality in the face. Obviously, the site was quickly taken down, and it's hard to believe something so dumb could happen. Head over to Political Wire for larger images. [Political Wire via Gawker]
