Stephen Colbert, Inspired by Senator Jon Kyl’s Big Planned Parenthood Lie, Introduces Twitter’s #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement

JonKylI think Stephen Colbert has found a great use for Twitter. A quick background on this from MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell:

Remember in Friday’s “Rewrite” when we showed you the big lie Sen. Jon Kyl told on the Senate floor about Planned Parenthood? The lie that “well over 90%” of Planned Parenthood’s services go to abortions?

The lie that Sen. Kyl’s staff later said “was not intended to be a factual statement” — a remark Lawrence [O'Donnell] called “one of the strangest clarifications in Senate history?” Well, we weren’t the only ones who took notice. So did Stephen Colbert.

    Kyl: “Not intended to be a factual statement…”

    Translation: “Intended to be a LIE, but he’s too much of a puss to admit it.”
