Who Is The Mystery Speaker?

From the WSJ:

TAMPA, Fla. – Republican convention planners appear to have a surprise planned for those tuning in Thursday night.

Buried deep in the convention schedule released Monday is a vague reference to a mystery speaker scheduled for the event’s final evening. “To Be Announced” has a prime speaking slot late in the Thursday program.

I suspect the speaker is Mitt Romney himself, making an early "surprise" visit, as Clinton did, and Obama did, before their actual acceptance speech the following night.

Oddly, the rightwing press is getting breathless with speculation.  Could it be…. her?  Sarah Palin?!?!?

Oh, I wish.  I do so wish.

Others have speculated that it will be a hologram of Ronald Reagan.  That would be cool, but both Sarah Palin and Ronald Reagan's ghost would only highlight the fact that Mitt has neither the popularity or charisma of either.

Folks, the mystery speaker is Mitt Romney.  Count on it.
