On Twitter, Delaney Is Better at Mocking Romney than Romney Is at Being Romney

Rob Delaney likes to pester Mitt Romney on Twitter because he's "such an attractive target comedically." As is the case with all things Twitter, Delaney is quite good at it, earning mountains of retweets, @ replies, and faves. He's so good at it that he often overshadows Romney's actual account. In June, 44% of the time Delaney was responsible for the most popular mention of the candidate Twitter. He was routinely beating the candidate's own Twitter account despite having 200,000 less followers and not actually being the person people are tweeting about. Delaney does have the advantage of writing his tweets himself and being, well, funny. Which of the below would you rather retweet:

Both are hilarious in their own way.
