Well, the lie-a-palooza that is the Republican National Convention is mercifully drawing to a close, and all that remains to be seen now is whether Mitt can convince non-Republicans (or Republicans, for that matter) that he’s even remotely likable or trustworthy, and whether he’ll break up the perfect game by accidentally saying something factual. I know, you’re not supposed to jinx it by talking about it, but it’s just so exciting!
But before we get to what will undoubtedly be a barn-burner of an acceptance speech, we must wait patiently through a bunch of speakers who are Not Mitt. According to WSJ’s Washington Wire, the lineup for the last two hours is as follows:
Former Massachusetts Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey
Jane Edmonds, former Massachusetts Secretary of Workforce
Olympians Michael Eruzione, Derek Parra and Kim Rhode
A “to be announced” speaker – current best guess is Clint Eastwood.
And finally, Marco Rubio and then Mitt himself. Please join me in the comments to help the time go faster, otherwise I fear the anticipation will drive me mad.
