As the evidence adds up that Arizona is quickly surpassing Georgia as the most fucked up state in the union (and is it any surprise that Georgia just adopted Arizona's immigration laws?), we now have the sad tale of Senator Jon Kyl-R(etarded).
So as I'm sure you've heard, the government almost shut down last week until they decided in the 12th hour, "Hey...let's just extend the deadline!" Seriously...why even have a fucking deadline? Anyway, the big issue that was holding up a budget agreement was the GOP's desire to defund Planned Parenthood because the GOP hates them some abortion.
Isn't it always about abortion? Like, there's no logical reason any Republican should ever be against abortion unless you consider the wrath of Jesus a logical reason. How the fuck can you be so inclined to cutting social services for the poor yet at the same time want to increase the population of the impoverished? Furthermore, how the hell is defunding the biggest provider of contraceptives in the country supposed to reduce abortions? Think about that for a second! It doesn't FIT!!! Okay, so here is Jon Kyl making the case on the Senate floor...
"Everybody goes to clinics, to hospitals, to doctors, and so on. Some people go to Planned Parenthood. But you don't have to go to Planned Parenthood to get your cholesterol or your blood pressure checked. If you want an abortion, you go to Planned Parenthood, and that's well over 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does," the senator crowed.
Now as you can see in the graphic above, the Senator may have exaggerated just a bit. Either that or he just flat-out lied because "well over 90%" would indicate let's say 95%? This fucking guy just missed the truth by 92 GOD-DAMNED MOTHERFUCKING PERCENT!!!
So what went wrong?
The senator's remark "was not intended to be a factual statement but rather to illustrate that Planned Parenthood, an organization that receives millions in taxpayer dollars, does subsidize abortions," Kyl's staff says in a statement.
No. Unacceptable in every way imaginable. Fire him now. He is not allowed to serve and if you voted for him you need to have those rights revoked immediately. I'm sorry, but there's simply no other way around it.
