Mitt Romney Cancelled Campaign Staff’s Credit Cards During His Concession Speech
The election is over, Barack Obama won, we’re in the middle of a goddamn bikini photo tsunami, so there’s absolutely no need for another politics post for a long ass time. Except Mitt Romney pulled such an incredibly impressive dick move Tuesday night, that I couldn’t live with myself if we didn’t take a moment to bask in its dickishness. I’m genuinely not even trying to make fun of the guy, that’s how awestruck I am by the epic lack of fuck he managed to give. It’s practically biblical. Via NBC News thanks to Todd who I feel like I owe a firstborn to for this:
From the moment Mitt Romney stepped off stage Tuesday night, having just delivered a brief concession speech he wrote only that evening, the massive infrastructure surrounding his campaign quickly began to disassemble itself.
Aides taking cabs home late that night got rude awakenings when they found the credit cards linked to the campaign no longer worked.
“Fiscally conservative,” sighed one aide the next day.
To put how badassly cold this move was in perspective, somewhere Derek Jeter‘s finding out how to give the chicks he bangs credit cards just so he can cancel them on their cab ride home because this is way better than going, “Uh, here, have a bobblehead. Get out.” It’s all about panache.
