DENVER, 12:09 a.m. — Strolling down a sidewalk downtown Tuesday, I suddenly noticed two television cameramen cross the street ahead of me and, cameras in hand, break into a full sprint in my direction.

This is odd, I thought.  I am usually famous enough to only attract one cameraman, not two.

So I looked around.  To my right — and by my right, I mean, within arm’s reach — was none other than Mitt Romney, one of the Republican interlopers for whom I warned to be on the lookout earlier this week.  I had been walking side-by-side with him for all of a block and didn’t even realize it.

The celebrity stalking continues tomorrow.  Things are looking up.
