Last night’s Republican Convention included some highlights, such as the ‘beauty and the beast’ act by Ann Romney and Chris Christie, and some low-lights, specifically Rick Santorum. How in the world was Santorum the guy closest to Romney in the race for the GOP nod?

There was a kerfuffle on the floor as Ron Paul supporters reacted with fury when the GOP leadership and the Romney campaign did everything in their power to stifle any type of Paul demonstration.

Speculation about the “surprise” speaker continues, and here is a list of candidates I found interesting.

    The ultimate “surprise” speaker would’ve been Joe Biden.
    Offer him the mic, and an hour to provide rebuttal to the speeches preceding his.
    THAT would have been priceless!

    The only surprise speaker that would make me take notice is Ron Paul, but he has principles and refuses to speak.

      Unfortunately, Ron Paul would make others take notice as well, thus destroying any chance of a Republican victory in November. No doubt about it. People do take notice of Ron Paul, kinda like rubber-neckers witnessing the carnage of a bad accident.

    I just read Rudy G. referred to Ron Paul as a “kook”. I believe I have heard that somewhere before.
