In flagrante (Pierre) Delecto

I had to put this post about Romney’s Pierre Delecto account before Hyp did. What are your thoughts on the junior senator from the Beehive State being a Frenchie? Cultural appropriation anyone?

    The fact that Utah couldn’t have found someone else tells me all I need to know about Mormons. Romney is an unmitigated jerk off.

    Seems unnecessarily harsh.  Not to Romney.

    I had the privilege to serve in Afghanistan with among others, two of the finest men I have ever met, both Mormons.  I’m still in touch with one of them.  The other was killed unarmed charging a Jihadi with an Ak-47 in the process of mowing down Americans.

    Just keeping a promise I made to myself on behalf of a better man.

    Exactly.  I understand that he was guided as to the content of his gnomic utterances by hours of contemplating some stones in his hat.

    (Hey, y’ think the “Pierre” is a clever reference  to those famous sacred pebbles?   As for the rest of his macaronic pseudonym, it sounds Spanish or Italian, though it isn’t…..does that have sump’n to do with hid dad’s Latin connections?  Ooooh, exegesis is SO fascinating!)

    As for Soxy’s hat tip—as the kids would say : I. Can’t. Even.  Idk, too easy?  Does  Pierre Delecto hang out with Carlos Danger?  I think the best comment I read was that “Pierre Delecto” oughta be Romney’s real name.

    He might have got more of the right votes with Pierre. Come to think of it Pete Dupont didn’t like the name when he ran.

    Yeah, you don’t want to insult an entire religion based on one insecure senator with an imaginary friend. On the other hand, if a millionaire Baptist carpetbagger showed up in Utah at election time he wouldn’t have gotten elected. So, identity politics is part of the problem.

  5. I am just very disappointed in Utah for this. I mean seriously what the hell were they thinking? There wasn’t anybody else who, you know, lived in the state prior to a week before filing as a senate candidate? Where was Mittens living right up until he filed?

  6. Apparently, when he’s not being a jerk in real life, Romney likes to play one on the Internet. I’ve read elsewhere that his twitter moniker is a play on in pari delicto, a legalism for both parties being equally at fault. But while dilicto translates as ‘offence’, delecto comes out of the Latin Way Back Machine as ‘beloved’ or ‘amusing’, which means Pierre Delecto could be read as Happy Peter or maybe Beloved Peter. In other words, a great name for a dildo … IF it weren’t already taken —

     

    Oh look: it’s a 2 for 1 sale  —

    I guess you might call it a BOGO on dildos.

  7. If anybody is interested, I was a member of the LDS for 22 years from 1953 until 1975. If you want to hear just how rotten the church is from it’s core, I can tell you. Romney is rotten at his core.

    This is the first time I think, I have mentioned being a member of the LDS publicly, as some on the other site are die hard Mormons, and I didn’t want to insult them.
