Coming Soon! Preibus' Brightest Stars

The RNC National chairman Reince Preibus recently announced some of the headline speakers that will be appearing at the Romney Republican nominating convention in Tampa Florida. Chairman Preibus calls the speakers

"some of our party's brightest stars, who have governed and led effectively and admirably in their respective roles."

And, warming up to the task of snake-oil salesman, he continues

"Ours will be a world-class convention, worthy of the next president of the United States, and these speakers – and those that will be announced later – will help make it a truly memorable and momentous event."

But Blogger Charlie Pierce peeks under the side of the circus tent and looks at three of the RNC convention’s stars. He finds these “effective and admirable” Republican governors are, um, under-appreciated, to say the least, in their respective home-state roles.

Brightest star Governor Nikki Haley enjoys an approval rating of 38 percent in her home state of South Carolina.

And fellow bright star and Medicare-scamster Rick Scott’s most recent approval rating comes in at a memorable 31 percent. The Romney campaign reportedly has hesitated to even appear with Scott at campaign events in Florida.

Ohio’s John Kasich weighs in at cool 47% percent approval rating and actually is kind of a rising star on this list, as his rating recently surged up from a low of 41percent.  

Other speakers will be Mike Huckabee the Governor from Chick-fil-A and Republican elder statesman Senator John McCain, who looked at Sarah Palin and saw a Vice President of the U S.

Tickets good for one ride. Keep your seats while the machine is motion. And eat more kale.
