Mystery speaker's existence, identity still a mystery

There may or may not be a blockbuster "mystery speaker" in the Republican National Convention Thursday night and it may or may not be Clint Eastwood.

Speculation has swirled over the last few days about an apparently unfilled slot in the convention program, with names from Eastwood to Colin Powell surfacing in the guessing game.

On a conference call with reporters this morning, Romney aides were tight-lipped when asked if Eastwood was the surprise -- or even if there was a surprise in the works.

"If there was a mystery speaker, then it wouldn't be a mystery anymore," Romney adviser Russ Schriefer said.

Asked simply whether there would be an unannounced speaker in the 10 o'clock hour, Schriefer said: "That's my comment."

Stay tuned!

It could have simply been an empty slot as they rearranged due to Monday

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev
