Microphone in the Magical Underpants

Who's whispering at Willard?

Tim Russert: Governor Romney, you are a big fan of Ronald Reagan.

Willard Romney: Mm-hmm.

Russert: Will you do for Social Security what Ronald Reagan did in 1983?

[whisper] raise taxes

Romney: I'm not going to raise taxes. What I'm going to do…

Russert: Ronald Reagan raised payroll tax and he also raised the retirement age and he saved Social Security…
Video via NewsRadio 1290 WJNO, where it's noted that what "makes this whisper even more bizarre is the fact the MSNBC's political blog had a post about it immediately afterward. You can see a screen grab of that post here. They have since removed this particular entry. Odd."

My guess is that it was one of the other candidates whispering on a hot mic. Either that, or it was the angel Moroni, who hasn't had much else to do since the 1820s.
