Factual Statements

Apparently Senate Majority Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) subscribes to the notion that uttering falsehoods and outright lies in the pursuit of partisan objectives is no vice. The fact is, only 3 percent of Planned Parenthood's budget involves abortions. When contacted by CNN for clarification, Kyl's office reportedly said, "his remark was not intended to be a factual statement." The late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan famously observed, "Everyone is entitled to his opinion, but not to his own facts." Sadly, Sen. Kyl does not know the difference.
