Romney's election day operations sound like a disaster. His volunteers deserved much, much better. The whole thing, from the secret website no one could try out ahead of time, to having everything directed from Boston, no one answering the phone, I mean Jeezus! I have worked on campaigns using index cards and lists of voters that were marked off manually and it worked very well. Even the name ORCA sounds ridiculous. Talk about a beached whale.
And when those staffers were ordering up a fireworks display, didn't they remember Red Auerbach's famous words after the Celts beat the Lakers in 1969 NBA finals? Something about balloons?
