This is a story that is as incredibly frustrating and disgusting as it is funny. The republican war on women is increasing and the latest battle is their attempts to defund Planned Parenthood. We posted the link earlier of Colbert making fun of Fox and Friends(they were so ridiculous he could not even do it with a straight face.
Recently Republican Senator Jon Kyl went on the floor of the Senate and knowingly lied. He said that abortion is “well over 90% of what Planned Parenthood does.”
When the actual figure turned out to be 3%, his office released a statement clarifying that Kyl’s figure was “not intended to be a factual statement” Really? He never intended to tell the truth on the floor of the fricking senate? Someone actually voted for this guy? Luckily for America he is retiring in 2012.
The incredible hypocrisy and outlandish behavior of the current Republican party just fuels Colbert’s fire. Here are some of Colberts Tweets after the Kyl Statement.
Colbert, tweeting as @StephenAtHome, began posting some not-so-factual statements about Kyl, beginning with “Jon Kyl is one of Gaddafi’s sexy female ninja guards #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement.” Since then, he’s launched more than 30 such broadsides, all bearing that exculpatory hashtag, including:
*Jon Kyl is an accomplished nude hula dancer. He is not welcome in Hawaii.
*For the past 10 years, Jon Kyl has been two children in a very convincing Jon Kyl suit.
*Jon Kyl cheated on Sandra Bullock.
*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.
*Jon Kyl developed his own line of hair care products just so he could test them on bunnies.
*Jon Kyl was sent from the future to kill Sarah Conner.
