You might have heard how Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl made up a wildly incorrect statistic about Planned Parenthood and then, once he realized his mistake, put out a statement that said his previous remark was "not intended as a factual statement. "  Well, today, comedian Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) has been lampooning Kyl on Twitter, making up crazy statements and then saying he never intended them to be factual.  As of 3 p.m. he's posted 30 jokes about Kyl.  Here are my favorite 10:  10 : Jon Kyl's torso is covered in superfluous nipples.

Last night on "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart and Wyatt Cenac had some fun with Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl, who falsely claimed that more than 90 percent of Planned Parenthood's business is providing abortions.   While Planned Parenthood does provide abortions (statistics show as many as a quarter of all abortions in the United States are performed through Planned Parenthood) the procedures make up about 3 percent of the organization's total business.  Confronted with the facts, Kyl's office claimed his remarks were not meant as a "factual statement.

President Barack Obama is facing the first big test of his post-midterm-election presidency in his effort to get a new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty ratified by the Senate during the lame-duck session of Congress. In the real world, the stakes are enormous: our relationship with Russia; the chance for meaningful sanctions against the rogue states of Iran and South Korea; the effort to reduce the number of nuclear weapons that could one day go astray — all ride on it. Unfortunately, the view looks different in the crucible of Washington, where Republicans are looking at the matter as determining whether Mr. Obama is still a force to reckoned with in the wake of the Democrats' devastating midterm election losses or if he is a weakened president going into the final two years of his term.
