There’s a buzz in the right-wing blogosphere today about rumored plans for a “mystery speaker” at Thursday night’s session of the Republican National Convention.
HERE‘s what the National Review is saying:
The good folks at the [Wall Street] Journal offer a poll of potential mystery guests, but most are unrealistic: former Georgia Democratic senator Zell Miller, well-armed rocker Ted Nugent, CIA Director David Petraeus, former First Lady Nancy Reagan, heroic pilot Chesley Sullenberger . . .
. . . or Sarah Palin.
As they used to sing on Sesame Street, “One of these things is not like the other, most of these things are kinda the same . . .”
I have no inside information (yet), but at dinner with my NR colleagues, last night, I pointed out that Palin is glaring by her absence from the program — I mean Huckabee’s speaking, and it’s been longer since his name appeared on a ballot — and that a surprise appearance would probably make the assembled delegates go nuts.
