As Below, So Above?

Minutes after the West Virginia Republican State Convention voted on the second ballot to give Mike Huckabee all 18 of its delegates, the Mitt Romney campaign sent out a press release accusing John McCain of "a dirty back-room deal" by throwing his support to Huckabee. Y'see, Romney was leading on the first ballot, 41-37 with McCain at 16. The second (and final) vote was Huckabee 52, Romney 47, and McCain 1.

If there are any Libertarian Party members still reading this... doesn't this sound a lot like some of the Aaron Russo supporters when Gary Nolan threw his support to Mike Badnarik in 2004's LP vote?

(And incidentally, for full disclosure, I was rooting for Nolan in 2004.)
