The Wall Street Journal reports that the revised Republican National Convention schedule contains “a vague reference to a mystery speaker.”
Russ Schriefer not giving anything up on mystery speaker. "If we gave you that information, it wouldn't be a mystery. Tune in!"—

A mystery? Oooh. The Twitter Bloodhound Gang is all over this one. Twitterers used two hashtags to investigate the unnamed speaker’s secret identity: #RNC2012MysterySpeaker and #GOPMysterySpeaker.
Drudge suggests Sarah Palin.
But some are doubtful.
Why in the world would the GOP's mystery speaker be some red meat conservative? Likely a prominent party elder or a Democratic defector.—

Herman Cain is teasing … Herman Cain.
Perhaps it’s Hologram Reagan?
GOP surprise guest speaker: Hologram Reagan!—

If they can bring Tupak back to life via a hologram, maybe they can bring back Ronald Reagan to speak at the convention.—

Could the trail of clues lead to … Joe Biden? Unlikely. But we can hope, right?
It would be awesome if the RNC "mystery speaker" was Joe Biden, lured on stage with a bright shiny object.—

Pretty obvious who "surprise speaker" is if you give it a little thought: Jenna Jameson—

Bigger “oh boy”:
Maybe the mystery speaker loves lamp?
Some speakers may prove harder to get than others.
Too soon, man. Too soon.
If there’s one certainty in life, it’s this:
If JJ Abrams ran the GOP convention, they'd never reveal the mystery speaker.—
