Let’s Play ‘Mystery Date’ With The Republicans!

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

It's the plumber, I've come to fix the sink

Political Wire asks, we answer!

Republican convention planners appear to have a surprise planned for those tuning in Thursday night, the Wall Street Journal reports.

“Buried deep in the convention schedule released Monday is a vague reference to a mystery speaker scheduled for the event’s final evening. ‘To Be Announced’ has a prime speaking slot late in the Thursday program.”

      Standing ovation from that crowd.

  • Barbara_

    My guess is that Lou Sarah shows up wearing a sweater and a bathing suit, shoots death rays from her new glasses and burns everyone up like ants under a magnifying glass. Then Levi is brought in and is forced to marry Bristol and everyone goes to Waffle House for the reception.

    Either that, or they let Donald Trump speak. Both scenarios are equally devastating.

    • SorosBot

      Donald Trump has been talking about some "big surprise" he has coming at the RNC, which some bloggers have figured is likely a video where he "fires" an Obama impersonator; so that probably really is it. Lame.

      • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Incitefully_Joe

        Weren't we the first people to speculate that's what it was? I mean, it was kinda the obvious thing, and he was recently seen with an Obama impersonater, so that is pretty much definitely what it was going to be, but I could swear that that was a WONKETE EXCLUSIVE MUST CREDIT WONKET speculation.

        • Lascauxcaveman

          RNC oppo research probably reads Wonkette just to get ideas like this.

          • CindynEncinitas

            Okay, shhhhh you guys!

        "Donald Trump has been talking about some "big surprise" he has coming at the RNC … "

      I'm so sure it's Trump, I'll bet ten million Mitt-dollars.

      • UnholyMoses

        I'll bet you no less than 13% of that …

      • SavageDrummer

    • Antispandex

      Yes, I was thinking that the whole "Mystery Speaker" thing had a little too much of a creepy, touchy, too long of a huggy uncle, sort of vibe. Well, yeah, like the G.O.P. and their rapist and incest baby obsession, sure… so Mystery Date Rape fits well. Good Call!

    3)Todd Akin and Tom Smith so they can just go ahead and double down on the lady-hate?

    4) Paul Ryan's pretend hausfrau/beard—preferably sporting something "Real Merikun" from Kohl's that her aide snatched from the clearance rack that afternoon?

    4a) Bonus points: Mrs. Ryan and (a barely able to contain her disgust) Marie Ann-Romnette have a cooking expo on stage where they further pretend to be "just like us"!!!

    5) Peggy Noonan to pass out drunk and revel in her pointless irrelevance?

    6) Rich Lowry to remind us that Mittens "won every race he was ever in, except for the two he didn't" and (of course) leave off that he's only been in 3 races.

    For everyone at the Horrorshow in Tampa this week, be sure to check out the strip club Camelot Palace this week, as it's featuring nude chocolate syrup wrestling matches between Victoria Jackson and Janine Turner on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights. The cover is only $10, and you get one free autograph from Jackson and Turner each. For another $10, you get a special lap dance by either Jackson or Turner, and for an extra $20, you get a lap dance by Jackson and Turner. So, for $30, you get the chocolate syrup wrestling match, two autographs, and a double lap dance by Victoria Jackson and Janine Turner. That should rile 'em up in Tampa this week!!

    • zippy_w_pinhead

      for $100 Chris Christie will swoop in and gobble them both up where they stand, belching his rage at the audience

  • IonaTrailer

    The entire cast of Honey Boo-Boo?

    • MOG2410

      Perfect!!!

      • Kid_Charlemagne

        Weren't they at the last GOP Convention?? No wait, that was the Palins.

  • TootsStansbury

    I really dislike these assholes.

  • thefrontpage

    Also, according to informed Republican sources in Tampa, the "mystery speaker" Thursday night will be a special nude appearance by Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin, and they will take turns reading, while completely naked, selected passages from "Emmanuelle," "Lady Chatterley's Lover," "The Story of O," "Fear of Flying" and "The Feminine Mystique." This is scheduled to occur directly after Rumley's speech.

    • PubOption

      Not 'Fifty Shades of Grey', or is that banned because of the British spelling?

  • Jus_Wonderin

    OT, sorta. Did anyone notice there are 4 girls and 3 guys in that photo? Which girl gets stiffed?

    • elviouslyqueer

      Judging by the three guys' general fabulousness, I believe the answer would be…

      None of them, Katie.

    • MissTaken

      The girl with the pink ponytail. All the others are matched up: a blah with a blah, a skier with a skier, and a formal dress girl with a dude in a tux. The casual hottie with the tank top and shorts and fun little hairdo goes to the park with her picnic basket and finds her Mr Right without the help of a stupid board game.

      • Jus_Wonderin

        I thought this was interesting, I didn't know how the game worked.

        Mystery Date can be played with 2, 3, or 4 players. The object of the game is to be ready for a date by acquiring three matching color-coded cards to assemble an outfit. The outfit must then match the outfit of the date at the "mystery door". The date is revealed by spinning the door handle and opening the plastic door on the game board. The five possible dates are:

        *the formal dance date
        *the bowling date
        *the beach date
        *the skiing date
        *the dud

        The date to be avoided is the poorly dressed "dud". He is wearing slovenly attire. His hair is tousled and his face sports a beard shadow. There was also a figure made out to represent a construction worker for another "undesirable" partner, as per prevailing values of the time.

        In the 1970s game, a picnic date replaced the bowling date.

        If the player's outfit does not match the date behind the door, the door is closed and play continues.

          How demeaning it was to encourage little girls to "play into" subservient and dependent gender roles! We are much more enlightened now, with mobile games like "Diner Dash" that encourage little girls to run around like crazy serving sammiches.

          • Jus_Wonderin

            I found this ironic. From what I can see “…his hair is tousled and his face sports a beard shadow…” is sort of THE look now.

        • tessiee

          "He is wearing slovenly attire. His hair is tousled and his face sports a beard shadow."

          He has hipster/nerd glases, lots of poorly executed tattoos, and a pierced bellybutton, and smells like patchouli and ass…
          Oh, wait; that's the speshul Portland version of the game.

  • Chichikovovich

    Pat Buchanan, baby. The "Culture War" speech wasn't a mistake – it was just given 20 years too soon!

  • JustPixelz

    Gotta be Jesus. Of course, he'll take one look at their platform and damn them. And when Jesus damns you, you stay damned.

  • RadioBowels

    Rebecca Schoenkopf?

  • MacRaith

    Come on, Editrix, don't be coy. We know the truth. You managed to sneak yourself onto the program, didn't you?

  • zippy_w_pinhead

    They're going to fly the moldering corpse of Ronald Reagan over the heads of the audience. As it reaches the apex of the arena it will burst into a thousand points of light, trickling down upon the attendees, forming a Star Wars shield protecting them the ravages of reality while anointing them with the holy ashes of his bleached white bones…

  • JustPixelz

    Probably Osama bin Laden. They'll bring him in to prove Barry didn't kill him. I'll bet they give him a ten minute standing ovation.

  • IonaTrailer

    Beverly LaHaye (Concerned Women for America) will speechify about hatin' the gayz, lovin' Jeebus, abstinence edumacation, and legitimate rape as family values.

    The brothers Koch.

    • Rotundo_

      They are the sponsors, so why not?

    I find those dates (the fems) real easy to m****te to.

    Close. Breitbart's got some hella good hiphop moves he learned from Tupac.

  • Schmegeg

    OBL. He's not dead.

  • zippy_w_pinhead

    Trump will ride Rafalca across the stage, waving Obummer's REAL birth certificate while Joe Arpaio stands in the wings firing his six guns like Yosemite Sam on bath salts…

    • sullivanst

      This sounds like a perfect idea.

      And no, I don't say that because Rafalca would rear at the gunshots, tossing Trump onto his empty skull which would then shatter like Humpty Dumpty, before charging and trampling Arpaio.

      OR DO I?

  • mrpuma2u

    Darth Vader will show up, force choke Mittens to death and make Paul Ryan an admiral.

    • zumpie

      Whilst Palpatine chuckles malevolently…

    • tessiee

      Darth Vader is kidding himself if he thinks he's a match for Ryan.

        They are letting Laura Bush speak again?

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    Common Sense?
    Nah.

  • Dumbedup

    Nancy Reagan still alive? I think her, alive or dead

  • Living in Joy

    I'm thinking Sarah Palin. She went a little too easy into this good night. Not much protesting. Laying a little too low. Think how this would energize the base because this woman can make a speech, even if 95% of it doesn't make sense, and the old geezers (and not so old, looking at you Rich Lowry) would definitely get a hard on over it.

  • mavenmaven

    1. William Ayers! He will admit to writing Obama's books for him! The republicans still want to vet Obama.
    2. Lyndie England will do a striptease and S&M exhibition for them.
    3. They will get Monica Lewinsky to vet Clinton, because if you are going to be out of synch with the times, go all out!

    Colin Powell. They've kidnapped his family, held him captive and tortured him. He finally turned (back) and agreed to be the new black face of the party.

  • littlebigdaddy

    a cracken?

  • Nostrildamus

    Classic Mystery Date? I don't think so. The game I saw commercials for in the 60's never had any brownz.

    A small, fluffy kitten that RMoney will stop on to demonstrate to the poors what happens when they defy their overlords. Occupy that, you uppity unemployed types.

    • tessiee

      For an encore, Rapey Eyes Ryan will stomp an actual poor person.

  • MinAgain

    If it was George Romney's ghost, instead of Breitbart, I'd actually tune in to hear him read his party the Riot Act and then curse them all with boils or baldness or whatever ghosts curse people with these days.

  • NotLloyd

    The surprise nomination of hologram Mitt Romney? Y'know just to make him creepier.

  • tihond

    Red Klotz will give a stirring pep talk.

  • DahBoner

    BUT WHAT DRESS WILL ANN WEAR???

  • BlueStateLibel

    A nattily dressed gentleman who promises to throw the election for Rmoney in exchange for their souls; they quickly accept.

  • BarackMyWorld

    Zombie Barry Goldwater.

  • zumpie

    Yet another totally irrelevant former someone (read Sununu or George Pataki) to insist that once everyone realizes what an awesome husband/father Mittens is, EVERYBODY will vote for him??

    Hologram Reagan. But that crowd will turn on him when he announces it's OK to raise taxes.

  • Kid_Charlemagne

  • horsedreamer_1

    Dick Cheney or Artur "RuPaul undragged" Davis.

  • ttommyunger

    I'm thinking Ann Coulter will fuck Pat Buchanan up the arse but will refuse the obligatory reach-around. David Duke will make a surprise appearance along with Mike Huckabee, Ted Nugent and the ghost of Charlton Heston and they will sing the first three verses of "Amazing Grace, Sit on My Face".

  • PinkoPopulist

    When I read this headline I was really sincerely hoping that Wonkette sent an undercover operative into the world of gay no strings attached dating in Tampa, attempting to trap unsuspecting Conservatives in Rent Boy scandals. Boy was I disappointed.

    We ALL KNOW THIS IS GOING TO BE DONALD TRUMP! YOU'RE FIRED! Derp de derp birth certificate KeNyA sociAlIST NOBAMA!!!
