An Eerie Vision of What Might Have Been

By Michael Baker

Have you ever wished that you were in an It’s a Wonderful Life type of situation, where you get to see what the world would be like if things had gone differently?  Well, thanks to a total fuck up by the Romney Campaign’s tech department, we have a small glimpse of what a Romney victory might have looked like.

On Tuesday night, the campaign briefly and inadvertently posted a pre-designed “victory page” on Mitt’s official website.  It proudly declared Romney to be the winner of the election and even contained a quote that the Republican candidate never got to say publicly.  It’s a fitting end to a campaign that had more than its fair share of gaffes.  Some eggheads over at Political Wire were swift enough to snap a screen shot before the blunder was corrected.  Check it out here.
