Republican Convention's Mystery Guest Revealed?

I still say the mystery guest is the frozen corpse of Ronald Reagan rolled out onto the stage.



A well-placed Republican source tells Townhall that Oscar-winning director and actor Clint Eastwood will travel to Tampa, Florida to attend Mitt Romney's nominating convention this week.

As the news media scrambles to identify the so-called "mystery speaker" scheduled to address GOP delegates on Thursday evening, some have speculated that the iconic Hollywood figure could fit the bill.

Our source -- who spoke on the condition of anonymity -- could not confirm if Eastwood is, in fact, the intriguing "to-be-announced" speaker, but stated unequivocally that the Dirty Harry star will arrive in Florida late on Wednesday or early on Thursday, and will return to southern California on Friday.

Eastwood endorsed Romney earlier this month and backed Sen. John McCain's presidential bid in 2008. He also attracted political buzz when he cut a controversial Super Bowl ad for Chrysler earlier this year, which some viewed as a tacit message in favor of President Obama. (oops!)

If he is the RNC mystery man, Eastwood would address Republican delegates just prior to Sen. Marco Rubio's introduction of Romney in primetime on Thursday night.

I am just afraid that everyone who went out for Obama in 08 won't go out again.

Young voters, I swear that if you don't roll your asses out of bed, I will make my way around the country, bitch slapping each and every one of you.

i don't like the assumption that the majority of younger people are democrats/liberals more so than older people. there are plenty of racist and hating young people out there too w/as much voting power.

You are just trying to be antagonistic in this thread, aren't you?

It's well known that Obama captured much of the youth vote in 2008. I am simply hoping that they actually go and vote again this time.

i'm not trying to be antagonistic. i'm just a realist. i'm aware that many young people went out to vote and helped Obama win. I'm not saying that can't happen again. I am saying that it's not just old people who are racist and hating.

Obviously I am aware that young people can be just as idiotic. I didn't state any thing to the contrary. I didn't mention anything about anyone being bigoted or racist.

My comment was simply about the numbers. The majority of young voters in 2008 swung for Obama. I hope they do it again. I don't see what is so difficult to understand about this.

obvs there are bigots of every age, but (at least where I'm from) a majority of the racism and douchebaggery comes from the older generations.

I was standing in line behind a dumb ass girl and her dumb ass friend at a bookstore and I heard one say that she was voting this year because they didn't want a socialist country. She was going to go on a rant about Obama but her friend changed the subject.

Of course, I live in Texas. I took Women's Studies and most of my class was homophobic and thought that being gay was a choice. Because "God" couldn't have made them that way.

I live in NY so I feel for you guyz in Texas.

Again, IA w/ you. I don't know why ppl are giving you crap for these comments, this is realistic and not at all antagonistic.

I agree that he got a lot of young voters, but I'm worried about other demographics as well.

In 2008, Obama EXCITED people. They wanted to get out and vote him into office. Now, they might want him in office, but they aren't just eager beaver to get out and vote.

I think that holds true for many demographics besides young people.

This is true, of course.
