-Headline of the Day-
"Romney Sells Inauguration Access, Nine Months Early."

Hey, want a front row seat to Mitt Romney's "presidential inaugural retreat?" That'll be a cool $50,000, please.

According to the report, "The offer, in a fundraising email circulated by a top Georgia supporter to fellow Republicans and obtained by BuzzFeed, is one of several goodies offered to those who contribute more than $50,000 to the joint fundraising committee known as 'Romney Victory,' a program whose outlines were first reported by POLITICO."

Donors at this level will also get "yet to be determined access at the Republican National Convention in Tampa in August."

OK, so that whole Tampa convention thing that Mittens has totally nailed down -- that's all up in the air and who knows what. But the Mitt Romney inaugural? Totally in the bag, no question about it.

No word on what'll it'll cost to get a seat at the absolutely guaranteed 2016 reelection celebration, but that'll be after Mittens cures cancer and eliminates poverty, so count on it to be plenty. (Buzzfeed)

-On the other hand...-

Got to be in it to win it. (McClatchy)

-Bonus HotD-
"Policy ignorance at the Supreme Court."

Conservative justices clearly have no idea what the hell is in the law they're expected to rule on.

File under "Unsurprising shit that should scare the crap out of you anyway." (Maddow Blog)
