Who’s the mystery speaker at the GOP convention?

The blogosphere is abuzz with rumors about the alleged “mystery speaker” who will be addressing the Republican convention.

Is it Sarah Palin, a nod to the Tea Party set?

Or Nancy Reagan, the widow of the beloved GOP icon?

Is it Sylvester Stallone, tough guy of the silver screen?

Or is it Clint Eastwood, an even tougher guy of the silver screen?

Make our day, Mitt! Please!

The Romney team, in an effort to juice up ratings for the big convention finale, piqued the interest of the chattering class when it announced a “to be announced” speaker just before Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s big introduction of nominee Mitt Romney.

Romney campaign officials stoked the gossip with strategically placed “no comments,” while confirming today that the mystery speaker is still on the schedule.

So is it Rush Limbaugh, the most powerful voice in conservatism?

Or Donald Trump, the loudest voice in television?

Mitt, you’re fired if you do that. Voted off the island. This is no reality TV production.

Could it be Tim Tebow, the official athlete of conservative Christians?

Or Joe Lieberman, staunch defender of Israel and former Democratic vice presidential nominee?

One convention attendee even mused about Ronald Reagan addressing the delegates via super-futuristic hologram.

Nobody who knows is talking.

And nobody who’s talking knows.

(Except that Fox News has settled on Eastwood as the likely suspect. Townhall.com says it’s a sure thing.)

Now, it’s your turn. Let us know who you want to hear from — and why.
