Tea Party - As Seen On TV

There is a whole line of products, that are lablled "As seen on TV".  After a quick couple minute television commercial showing the many benefits of it, along with some oohs and aahs from the TV audience, people are mesmeorized into pulling out their credit cards and placing their order(call right now and we will throw in....)

The problem is when the product finally arrives, you realize you just bought a boxful of crap and wished you had that $19.99 back!   Which brings me to the tea party!

During the 2010 elections, a few billionaires got together and came up with a grand scheme,(Ron Popeil would be proud) to sell the American electorate a box full of crap and instead of labeling it "as seen on tv" they incredibly mislabeled it "the tea party".

Well America has had two years to try out the product and has become very disgusted when we saw what we bought.   From the incredible insanity of dead beat dad Joe Walsh who has his own greatest hits,

to Wisconsin's own junior Senato, Gold digger Ron Johnson, who has been such an embarrassment to Wisconsin that he has his own website chronicling his gaffe's.  Allen West and his crazy express and there is not enough time or space to print the lies of tea party queen Michelle Bachmann! Let's also not leave Sean "I cant make it on $174/k yr" Duffy, whose one claim to fame is being a drunk stripper on Mtv's "Real World".

Now we can add another name to the list:   Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN)!

 -- A pro-life, family-values congressman who worked as a doctor before winning election as a Tea Party-backed Republican had an affair with a patient and later pressured her to get an abortion, according to a phone call transcript obtained by The Huffington Post.

The congressman, Rep. Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee, was trying to save his marriage at the time, according to his remarks on the call, made in September of 2000. And, according to three independent sources familiar with the call and the recording, he made the tape himself.
 As Capper says: but wait there's more(emphasis mine):

DesJarlais' campaign vigorously denied those charges in his 2010 race against Democratic Rep. Lincoln Davis, saying they were hauled out of history for political purposes and had not been deemed credible at the time.

But the new transcript and other revelations from court documents paint a more damning picture of a man who was a serial philanderer willing to push one of his lovers -- whom he met as a patient with a foot problem -- to terminate a pregnancy, even when he suspected he was the father.

"You told me you'd have an abortion, and now we're getting too far along without one," DesJarlais tells the woman at one point in the call while negotiating with her over whether he'll reveal her identity to his wife. They then discuss whether he will accompany her to a procedure to end the sort of life the congressman now describes as "sacred."

"You told me you would have time to go with me and everything," the woman complains.

"I said, if I could, I would, didn't I? And I will try," DesJarlais says. "If I can [find] time, you're saying you still will?"

"Yeah," the woman answers.

The two bicker over when they can meet to hash out a solution, and they make clear the nature of their relationship when DesJarlais says delaying a resolution isn't fair to his wife.

"This is not fair to me. I don't want you in my life," the woman says.

"Well, I didn't want to be in your life either, but you lied to me about something that caused us to be in this situation, and that's not my fault, that's yours," the doctor responds.

"Well, it's [your] fault for sleeping with your patient," the woman fires back.

After arguing for a bit about who came on to whom -- with the woman seeming incredulous at DesJarlais' interpretation that she made the first move -- he gets back to the abortion.

"If we need to go to Atlanta, or whatever, to get this solved and get it over with so we can get on with our lives, then let's do it," DesJarlais says.

“Well, we’ve got to do something soon. And you’ve even got to admit that because the clock is ticking right?” he says at another point.

This story perfectly sums up what we bought when we bought into the tea party appeal of two years ago,  pure hypocrisy, lies, do as I say not as I do, no morals, no ethics, its the woman's fault, no family values, etc...

One last thought on the good tea party republican doctor:

He talks repeatedly of getting the problem "solved" or "fixed" and eventually explains he's desperate to patch things up with his wife, who had filed for divorce two years before, in late 1998, alleging improper marital conduct. She had relented, however, and according to court documents, they were trying to reconcile.

The marriage appeared to fall apart for good at about the time DesJarlais made his recorded phone call, and he eventually admitted in court papers to at least four affairs. Court records indicate that at one point in the marriage, they had a "written agreement to date other people."

For the sake of our country, the tea party can not disappear into the annals of history fast enough!  

I wonder if Mitt Romney personally profited from the abortion that republican tea party DesJarlais paid for?
