Mitt Romney suffered a sound defeat Tuesday but you’d never know it from his campaign’s victory website, briefly published by mistake on Election Night.

Political Wire’s Taegan Goddard captured screenshots of the transition website, which was taken down by Thursday morning. The website featured biographies of Romney and his vice presidential candidate, Rep. Paul Ryan, as well as pages dedicated to “The Inauguration” and to “Join the Administration.”
