McCain Calls Romney to Congratulate Him

Anyone wonder what that conversation sounded like?

I can almost feel the teeth-gritting from here.

Mitt Romney's stepping on McCain's concession speech with his victory speech. I guarantee you there are a couple dozen people at McCain camp looking at the TVs switching to Mitt right now, going "God, I hate those guys."

Update: E.M. tells me that was happening all weekend in Michigan. McCain had to schedule events with hours between his and Romney's planned appearances or he'd get his toes stepped on.

I like that Romney's hair was out of place. Genuinely mussed or strategically mussed to give the impression of frantic campaigning and election night enthusiasm? I say genuine.
