What floored me about the PP issue were the comments Sen. Kyl made that “90% of PP’s budget goes to providing abortions for women.” The actual figure is around 3%, but that didn’t stop Kyl. When Don Lemon of CNN called his office for clarification of his comment, his reply “took the cake.” His response was that his statement wasn’t meant to be “truthful” but to emphasize that PP spends the majority of its funds on abortion services.
This is a U.S. Senator who stood on the floor of the Senate, told a blatant lie, and when he was challenged, admitted that he had LIED on purpose. What gets me is that many republican voters never do any substantive research on what their leader say, accept whatever they say as being the truth, and go on to repeat the lie ad infinitum. It would seem that when these lies being told by rw politicians have been exposed, their supporters would look askance at them, but they don’t. Instead, they defend them with extra exuberance.
Lying politicians depend on the media not calling them on it. They have figured out by now there are zero consequences to lying to the American public, especially in the “let’s hear both sides” style of “journalism” today. A bold faced lie is treated as the other side. But Kyl got caught peddling a whopper on the senate floor. Unfortunately, without all of the information out there on Planned Parenthood and pushback from Dems, during the budget fight, Kyl’s lie would have escaped notice.
