Mitt Romney's Secret Twitter Account Is Full NeverTrump and Retweets Lots of Liberals; Name Is Play on in pari delicto, "Both sides to blame"

He is who we thought he was.

John Nolte notes that "Pierre Delecto" rebutted Mitt Romney's critics without acknowledging that he was in fact Mitt Romney.

Didn't some people on the right formerly have a problem with such White Knight Sockpuppets? Dishonest, and also pure vanity.

Everything about this story says so much about Mitt Romney: his pettiness, his insecurity, his lack of character, honesty, and decency, starting with how it all unraveled: Romney doing business with the establishment media -- in this case, the far-left Atlantic and activist-reporter, McKay Coppins, who was originally hired at BuzzFeed to destroy Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign.

Nolte runs through Coppins' attacks on Romney, as he was specifically hired to execute. (Coppins was hired by BuzzFeed because he's a leftie and a Mormon and therefore could attack Mitt Romney with enhanced credibility.)

But Romney continues sucking up to him anyway, and disclosed that he had a "lurker" account on Twitter to Coppins.


It took a writer at Slate about fourteen seconds to discover that Mitt Romney, a sitting United States Senator, uses the name Pierre Delecto to run all around Twitter defending… Mitt Romney.

Other examples of Definitely Not Mitt Romney defending the severely conservative name of Mitt Romney at the link.

Casey Mattox -- a champion beta-orbiter of all the most egregious Ahoy Maties on Twitter, and is one of the few people "Pierre Delecto" followed -- guesses, or perhaps, was told by Mitt Romney himself (again sockpuppeting), that "Pierre Delecto" is almost certainly a play on in pari delicto, a Latin phrase meaning "both parties are equally to blame." I think it means literally, "in both, guilt." ("Delicto" also appears in in flagrante delicto, which I think means "blazingly guilty," that is, so guilty as to be on fire (in flagrante).)

Sounds and awful lot like Mitt Romney is one of those "True Conservatives" who thinks conservatism is best expressed as a synthesis of a few conservative ideas with an awful lot of progressive ones. That's what the "Both Sides" people push.

Below, some of Mitt Romney's favorite accounts are, naturally, either wife-sharing-curious or outright progressive.

Posobiec notes that "Pierre Delecto" might mean "Peter Delight." "Pierre" is the French for Peter, and "delecto" (rather than delicto) is Latin for "delight."

Is Mitt Romney saying he's a Lucky Peter?

The middle guy in a gay man threesome.

While giving it to Ted and recieving it from Joe, Johnathan knew he truely was the Lucky Peter.

Note that that also as "in the middle" and "both sides" connotations.

(Oh, I'd forgotten that Lucky Pierre is also a slang term with the same meaning.)

Kurt has all the right enemies:

19 Posobeic also pointed out that Mitt really, really doesn't like Kurt Schlichter, and would routinely retweet attacks and nastiness directed at Kurt.
