Mitt Romney's staff decided to play a little April Fool's joke on him:

Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Ron Johnson—two key Romney surrogates here in Wisconsin—were in on the joke. Ryan introduced the candidate as planned in the empty room, as Romney and Johnson listened off stage. But as Romney prepared to enter the room to his usual soundtrack of Kid Rock's "Born Free," his staff warned him that turnout at the event had been lighter than expected.

"I go in there, and it's completely empty. There's nobody there!" Romney giggled, as he later recounted the prank to his audience at the real event. "I thought, oh boy, this is going to look really bad on the evening news, let me tell ya."

Don't know why he's so upset...it's not exactly the first time he's had to deal with empty rooms before, is it?
