Romney's Orca fiasco

This is a great article on the IT project fiasco in Mitt Romney's campaign:

Inside Team Romney's whale of an IT meltdown

This is a good quote that is representative of much you see around among IT projects:
[...] I had some serious questions—things like 'Has this been stress tested?', 'Is there redundancy in place?', and 'What steps have been taken to combat a coordinated DDOS attack or the like?', among others. These types of questions were brushed aside (truth be told, they never took one of my questions). They assured us that the system had been relentlessly tested and would be a tremendous success."
