When Mitt Romney tweeted his congratulations to RNC chair Reince Priebus on his reelection this afternoon, he added, “See you in San Diego tonight.” Priebus had told the press earlier this week that there was no speaker scheduled for Friday night’s GOP reception on the U.S.S. Midway, but Romney reportedly asked Priebus at the last minute if he could have a few moments to make some remarks while the band was on its break.
If Romney’s speech comes as a surprise, so does the rumor that Romney, ridiculed endlessly during his campaign for his car elevator and his wife’s horse, would be arriving aboard the Midway on a helicopter.
It’s only one word from Romney senior advisor Eric Fehrnstrom, but we’re counting on it.

After seeing this, we’re not sure what to think.
