Up for Debate: DesJarlais testimony revelations

Monday, November 19, 2012 at 1:38am

What's your reaction to the Scott DesJarlais revelations in the testimony transcripts released last week? Would their release have changed the outcome of his re-election had they come out prior to Election Day?

The voters who called for Bill Clinton's head on a silver platter, over a blowjob, are the same folks who so easily forgave Doctor DesJarlais for his numerous trysts and unprofessional dalliances. Hypocrites voted for the hypocrite.

The GOP is the party of high hypocrisy...they should change their logo - from an Elephant, to a Hippo....the Republican Party is the party of the hippo-critters....the hippo-crits....the hippo-crats....I like the unhyphenated, closed compound term, "hippocrats"...any seconds on that?

Ben, if you bend over backwards (pun intended) to show your moral superiority, which is exactly what Republicans do, yes, you should be upset about his behavior. The fact that you so fervently defend the defenseless illustrates that when all is said and done, you're nothing more than your typical partisan sheep.

Yogi, do you want me to show you the definition of evidence once again? It isn't rocket science, you know. Just prove that the law is wrong.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 12:16

g, he can't define "italicize" let alone "evidence."

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 12:16

And don't even start with "HTML code."

So true Loner. Get one or two blowjobs.. and they wanta impeach your arse, it ain't right!

By: slacker on 11/19/12 at 12:18

A man should be free to choose on blowjobs!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 12:20

yogi, does your dictionary have the word "evidence" in it? It comes before "italianize."

My other BINGO card just dumped all my markers...That board is located here:


They deleted all of my posts there...must have been half a dozen or so....so, I left this post, which probably will not stay up for long:

OMG...All of my previous comments have been deleted by the CBS Censors. I had obeyed the TOS, but I had said too much, or so it appears.

Apparently, any sympathy for the stateless Arabs in Gaza or criticism of the US-Israel special relationship is strictly forbidden on this site.

Wow...CBS has deteriorated over the years...Walter Cronkite and Douglas Edwards would not recognize the place....it's Occupied Israeli territory.

And the acronym: CBS stands for Complete BS.

I gotta roll into Albion...Protest Monday 3-4 EDT....Holy War is spreading in the ME....let's not get sucked in....HOLY WARS SUCK....gotta man the signage.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 12:34

Amen, Loner.

By: Loner on 11/19/12 at 12:52

Before I go, I Googled it, the President and Chief Executive Officer of CBS Corporation is Leslie Moonves... the great-nephew of David Ben-Gurion, the first Prime Minister of Israel.


Calling CBS news "Occupied Israeli Territory" is not an exaggeration, it is a fact.

I never said I was for banning abortion or that I'm morally superior in any way... quite the opposite in fact.

By: gdiafante on 11/19/12 at 1:10

Re-read my post, Ben. It's says Republicans.

By: dargent7 on 11/19/12 at 2:25

Putting a loaded or UNloaded hangun into your mouth is insanity.
If his intent was "to make a point..."
Anyone want to retain his services as a competant physician?

By: bfra on 11/19/12 at 2:47

Hi d7 - I wouldn't let him doctor my dog and it doesn't say much for the mentality of the people that voted for him.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 3:01

So it's way more than just whether or not the guy pushed for an abortion on the sly. He's a wacko that sleeps with his patients and puts a gun into his mouth to make a point. Sure, he's qualified to be in office! Sheesh.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 3:02

I guess yogi has left to go "italianize" his dictionary.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/19/12 at 3:57

I think you all need italianizeing a lot.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 4:10

Apparently - lol! If it's not bad enough - he had to post the definition and STILL didn't realize it was the wrong word! That takes a certain type of special.

By: yogiman on 11/19/12 at 4:11

Sorry, kids,

I've had to get a few things done today, but it's amazing to me you all know more about Doctor DesJarlais and his "actions" than you do about the man you call your president.

How have you been able to get so much information about Doc so soon, but you haven't been able to even get you president's birthplace?

I reckon the party makes the difference, huh?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 4:12

I guess all that "italianizing" is time consuming.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 4:14

yogi, you are the only one confused about the president's birthplace. Maybe there's some misinformation in your italianized dictionary.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 4:16

Either that or you're staring into your diapers like it's a cup of tea leaves.

By: yogiman on 11/19/12 at 4:22


Where did you get all of that college information that no one else seems to be able to get? Why did he put it under log and key with his first Executive Order on January 21, 2009?

The only school papers I have seen on him are his school papers when he was a citizen of Indonesia, who would not allow dual citizens in their nation.

If Obama was born in Hawaii, why haven't they shown the papers? Why won't the doctor and hospital certify it? Don't they want the free advertisement? Why has the hospital not displayed his letter of recognition on display?

You all seem to be able to find all kinds of information an every subject overnight..., except on Barry Soetoro, even after over 4 years. Can't you find any?

By: bfra on 11/19/12 at 4:23

LOL Blanket - That last one could explain why yogi doesn't know anything.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 4:26

Since when has ANYONE demanded to see someone's school records?! OMG, he could find the information if he searched legitimate information sources!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 4:27

Remember how he said he gladly admits when he's wrong? Well......maybe if we italianized it he would.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 4:30

I suppose it's under "log and key" according to the idiot.

By: yogiman on 11/19/12 at 4:30

What in the cornbread hell is "manicomio", B2? I couldn't find it in my encyclopedia.

By: yogiman on 11/19/12 at 4:33

Did you mean "Italinized" or "idiozized" treehugger7?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 4:34

Look in your italianized dictionary. It's Italian for lunatic.

Cornbread hell idiot.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 4:36

You asked to have some words "italianized", did you?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/19/12 at 4:40


By: BenDover on 11/19/12 at 4:55

Have a great night guys! Enjoy your 'right to choose' bashing.

By: brrrrk on 11/19/12 at 5:08

Ideology overrides principle.......

By: yogiman on 11/19/12 at 5:54

Idiocy also overrides intelligence, brrrrk. I'm afraid the idiocy of this group is going to shock the hell out of you all.

But then, if you're fellow communist with Barry, you won't be surprised. I hope I'm still living to laugh at you. I'll feel better "checking out" then.
