Today I learned that Mitt Romney is so sure that he’s going to win this fall’s election that he has already shifted our own Roy Blunt’s role as his campaign’s congressional liaison, to that of greasing the congressional skids for the post-election period:

Sen. Roy Blunt (Mo.), who led Romney’s Member-endorsement whip operation, said the goal now includes building relationships between Congressional Republicans and the nominee and his team so that the two groups are prepared to collaborate effectively beginning in January 2013 … .

That’s not all. Romney is already gathering funds not only for the inauguration celebration after th is election, but for the 2016 election as well. Hell, he’s already selling access. He may not have too much else going for him, but he’s got chutzpah.
