GOP Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona claimed last week that abortion is “well over 90% of what Planned Parenthood does.”

The actual number is less than 3%.

Details, details. Okay, fine, so it’s the usual right-wing strategy of “the sky is green, war is peace, why do you hate America” approach to discourse; namely, repeat a lie often enough and it becomes true. Yawn. Move on.

Unless you’re Kyl’s spokesperson and explain it with a true yet colossally idiotic comment to reporters: that the 90% figure “was not intended to be a factual statement.”

Stephen Colbert has now launched the Twitter meme featuring Jon Kyl and the hashtag #notintendedtobefactual:

Once a year, Jon Kyl retreats to the Arizona desert and deposits 2 million egg sacs under the sand.

Citing religious reasons, Jon Kyl refuses to utter the number 8.

Jon Kyl once ate a badger he hit with his car.

Carly Simon wrote that song about Jon Kyl.

Legally, Jon Kyl cannot be within 100 yards of Helen Mirren.

Jon Kyl has a shrine to Scooter from the Muppet Show.

You get the idea. If you have a Twitter account, go for it. Otherwise, feel free to go nuts here in the comments.


Jon Kyl is an alien can probe people anally with his tongue.

John Kyle considered going into the priesthood because he likes to diddle little boys but decided to be a senator because the pay is better.

the fertile soil in which Kyle grows:

He has been plagued with questions and doubts concerning his background throughout his first term as President.

Questions like – is Barack Obama actually American? Is he a Muslim? Is he actually an alien from another planet? – have frequently been asked.

(ftr people also think Fox nation is a bunch of inbred morans)

Jon Kyl is the warmest smartest wisest sanest human being ever and he’d make the most awesome preznit.

Okay, this is a great one from Colbert:

@Capt Howdy: Wait, did you forget a #notintendedtobefactual there?


actually I am completely serious. it actually sounded like a democrat.
what happens now, well thats another story.

@Capt Howdy: He also sounded like one in 2008. I’ll wait for the sellout.

@nojo: Come for the Hope ™, stay for the Sellout.


the sellout could come but it was not in this speech.

@Capt Howdy: If nothing else, congratulations to whoever floated the expectation-lowering Simpson-Bowles rumor yesterday. Well-played.

@Capt Howdy: I want to watch/read it, but reading this on Sully’s liveblog gives me Hope:

2.17 pm. Are you for children with Down Syndrome … or tax cuts for the increasingly wealthy? Then he describes himself as one of the rich, and compares his new tax break with 33 seniors having to find $6,000 each to fund their healthcare. Then a hard-hitting claim that the Ryan plan isn’t “serious or courageous.”

@Capt Howdy: Well, Rachel’s almost pornographic with joy. Guess I’ll have to read it.

@FlyingChainSaw: We’ve missed you! How is the Prime Minister of Indonesia doing?
