Sources inside the Romney campaign indicate that the Republican nominee will drop all pretense in his address tonight to his party’s convention, and admit the truth of several allegations that the mainstream media has been pressing him to concede. These include plans to revoke the 13th Amendment, eliminating the first obstacle to returning blacks to slavery. Romney will also detain all women present at the speech as prisoners-of-war.In a nod to increased media speculation about Romney’s Mormon faith--even though Obama’s participation in the racist church of Jeremiah Wright was not a focus at the Democratic National Convention four years ago--Romney plans to re-introduce Ann Romney as the second of his three wives. Sources indicate that her refusal to describe her marriage as “storybook” earlier this week was, in fact, a coded Mormon message.

A young Teach for America volunteer will also speak--and will be beaten brutally by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, in deference to media requests that he be more aggressive to appease the bloodthirsty Republicans in their anti-government, anti-education fervor.
Amidst the serious themes, there will be some fun and games: Tampa’s famed cigar-rollers have produced a giant replica of Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate, which will be ritually burned as a protest against global warming (the theory, not the phenomenon itself). Sarah Palin will also appear via satellite, waist deep in flooded Louisiana waters, where she and her family are fishing for drowned black people.
