Romney's Campaign Staff Stranded On Election Night With Cancelled Credit Cards 

If you wrote this into a novel, your editor would ding you for using too heavy-handed a metaphor:

Mitt Romney’s campaign staff preparing to head back home were in for a shock late on election night, as they found their campaign credit cards cancelled.

The decision, described “fiscally conservative” by one of Romney’s campaigners to NBC News, was a rude shock to the tired campaign staff, many of whom were left stranded holding the defunct credit cards and no source of revenue.

We dodged a bullet. (Via International Business Times)
