Lying like a rug in service of the greater good.

Jon Kyl said on the senate floor that abortions are 90% of what Planned Parenthood does.

Somebody fact-checked him, the dirty meany bullies. 3% of the services Planned Parenthood does are abortions, and none of those can receive federal funds. Because abortions are more expensive that birth control, abortions are about 15% of the billing at Planned Parenthood.

Still, there's that 90% number. What was that? Kyl's office was reached for comment, and they said that what he said was not intended to be a factual statement.

I guess I could take the time to rip Kyl a new one, but thankfully for the Republic, we have Jon Stewart, Wyatt Cenac and Stephen Colbert to help out on that front.

And, oh yeah, the folks at Fox and Friends are equally full of shit.

What a surprise.

Whenever I hear a snippet of the B_S that Faux news sprouts, I wonder that anybody believes that Neanderthals have disappeared from the planet. Au contraire, they are alive, well, and disseminating misinformation from your TV set and other points on the compass.
