Arizona Republican Lies Through His Teeth About Planned Parenthood

Sen. Jon Kyl on the Senate floor: “If you want an abortion, you go to Planned Parenthood, and that’s well over 90% of what Planned Parenthood does.”

Chart of services from Planned Parenthood’s 2008-2009 Annual Report:

Statement from Kyl’s office regarding the 87% discrepancy: “His remark was not intended to be a factual statement.”

Stephen Colbert: “See?  It was not intended to be a factual statement! You can’t call him out for being wrong when he never intended to be right! I must say, that is an amazingly liberating defense.”
