Mitt Romney's concession speech was surprisingly gracious, at least compared to other parts of his campaign, but, like the man himself, it was also incredibly boring. He covered all the standard points: he began by congratulating the Obamas (and this time, thankfully, there was no booing), and then thanked Paul Ryan, his wife Ann ("She would have been a wonderful first lady," which, no, but still a sweet gesture), his creepy sons, and his campaign. Teachers, professors, rabbis, pastors and parents all got shout outs as did, of course, "job creators." And he ended it with: "I believe in America. I believe in the people of America." He forgot to add, "Except for 47% of them. Those people, I really don't believe in at all."
