Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, October 20, 2019

Slate's Ashley Feinberg found what she believes "Looks Like Mitt Romney's Secret Twitter Account." According to Feinberg's piece she read the Atlantic's profile of Romney published Sunday morning and noted that Romney admitted to having a secret Twitter account. By 6:42 p.m. Sunday, Feinberg had found the secret account, wrote and published the story. It wasn't long before Pierre Delecto was trending.

"These tweets are protected"

Doesn't surprise me, Romney is a 47%er who hides his hand while he throws rocks.

Run Romney! Run! With you in the race, Bradford Winston might have reason to live again. In the Book of Proverbs, Chapter 27, Verse Whatever, your destiny to someday be President is made manifest! Don't let the liberal lying scum keep you from your destiny.

Why can't you just discuss the topic of the thread FOR ONCE?

Just wanted to throw some trump chum in the water and see who attacks so you can derail the thread as fast a as possible?

"What 'Pierre Delecto' tells us about the current Republican Party"

"Think about this: The 2012 Republican presidential nominee -- and a sitting US senator! -- felt the need to defend his commitment to his party from behind the veneer of a fake person's account on Twitter.
While Pierre is right that Romney has been more willing than most Republican elected officials to publicly criticize Trump, it's also true that Romney hasn't a) been all that critical of Trump or b) done anything to put his discomfort with Trump into action.

Instead, he's used a fake Twitter person to defend himself and his image. Which works nicely as a metaphor for how elected Republican officials, more broadly, are dealing with Trump: light criticism (at most) in public and open anger, frustration and near-rebellion behind the scenes or covered by the anonymity of quotes without their names attached. "

Wasn't that his name when he was dodging the draft by doing his mission in France?

Face it, M8, you killed your brilliant bastard son Brad with your clumsy ctrl+tabbing fat fingers.

If only you could have killed your own account, instead of his.

Like Johnny Cash's dad said when Johnny's older brother was killed working the family saw mill:

"Lord, you took the wrong one!"

On that note (stay with me, you'll see what I did there), I'm posting Johnny Cash and Fiona Apple singing "Father and Son":

www.youtube.com

I know that it's not easy
To be calm when you've found something going on
But take your time, think a lot
Why, think of everything you've got
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not

Son

How can I try to explain, when I do he turns away again
It's always been the same, same old story
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen
Now there's a way and I know that I have to go away
I know I have to go

Long live Bradford Winston!

Tells you something about today's REPUBLICAN statesmen. Repub media has turned their base into such a mob of feverish hateful monsters, they have to hide their faces if they want to say something reasonable.

To this day, the only person dumb enough to discuss her private positions being different from her public positions was Hillary Clinton.
