A “mystery speaker” for Thursday night?

Quote:
The cancellation of the first night of the Republican convention forced planners to compress the schedule a bit. Bobby Jindal had to drop out, of course, for very good reason, as Tropical Storm Isaac continues to aim at southern Louisiana and Mississippi. That still left a little room, though, for some intrigue, as the RNC’s schedule has a mighty suspicious hole in prime time on the final night of the convention (via Kate Hicks):

Quote:
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.


By then, speakers from Mitt Romney’s church will have taken the stage that night. The co-founder of Staples office-supply chain will have spoken about working with Mr. Romney during his time at Bain Capital. State officials from Massachusetts will have talked about the former governor. Olympians will have already thanked the presidential candidate for leading the 2002 Winter Games.

The only other speakers to follow “To Be Announced” will be Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Mr. Romney himself, suggesting that the unnamed guest may appear during the 10 p.m. hour when the networks all will be broadcasting the convention.
Let the games begin! Who might be important enough to feature in prime time just before Rubio’s nominating speech? It won’t be former President George W. Bush, who will address the convention via video on Wednesday. It won’t be his brother Jeb either, who’s already scheduled for Thursday evening. The newest member of Augusta, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, has a slot on Wednesday. Newt Gingrich has his slot on Thursday already set, and Rick Santorum will open the festivities later today. Ron Paul will have a video presentation on Wednesday.

So who isn’t speaking at the convention? Here are a few names:

Governor Rick Perry
Herman Cain
Fred Thompson
Michele Bachmann
Rush Limbaugh
Sarah Palin

I hope it's Sarah, too...

Not because I really care if she speaks or not...Just that I know the Left will gnash their teeth irrelevant of what she actually says...

How is Sen. Mark Kirk doing?

Maybe perhaps he could be well enough to attend?
