The video feed in the arena says there are still four hours to go until Sarah Palin's speech, but already the place is zinging with more energy and bold names than it has been all week!
Spotted so far: Samantha Bee from The Daily Show, David Brooks (swoon), Gary Bauer, Karl Rove (he was very friendly, smiling at everyone and in a big hurry), the folks of the upcoming movie, An American Carol, and more wildly dressed delegates than you can imagine. Everyone is pumped up for tonight — with Mitt, Mike, Rudy, and Sarah, I am too! I'm grabbing my seat now and I'll keep you posted!
