The funny begins in Michigan soon after the results were called by the networks. While McCain was just beginning to deliver his concession speech, Romney starts his speech early and FOX cuts away from him abruptly. That was no accident apparently.

Hume: Well, Mitt Romney's decided not to wait for John McCain to finish, he's the winner so we feel obligated to go to him---Mitt Romney in Michigan.

Earlier in the above clip---while Huckabee was delivering his loser speech, it appears that McCain did the same thing to him. Ouch! I wonder if the media will give this any coverage? I wouldn't hold my breath since it makes Republicans look like they lack a certain amount of civility and they can't have any of that. And as Billw pointed out:

The Michigan Republican Party mistakenly sent out a news release Tuesday night congratulating John McCain for winning the state's GOP primary.
