(technical difficulties): Here's more of the Stephen Colbert/Jon Kyl

(Editor's Note:  The video of Colbert skewering Arizona Senator Jon Kyl over his egregious Planned Parenthood statistic flub - and his subsequent explanation that it was is not intended to be a factual statement - is in the post below.  But, something about the embedding code must have gobbled up the rest of the text of the post.  Twice.  (I now have less hair than I did this morning.)  I have not had a problem posting here in quite some time that would prompt me to save text before hitting submit.  Sooooo, I do not have the time to re-create the text for what was a pretty decent post, for a third time.  Therefore, I will just post the links with one line descriptions.  Please fill in your own jokes and text!)

1)  Kyl Senate floor speech Arizona's Politics posted from Friday; NOT the one in which he made the error: http://bit.ly/hxvCsC

2) Colbert's Twitter feed, in which he (and his staff) are issuing a Kyl factoid* every 30 minutes: http://bit.ly/gW3ALM

3)  Example of one of the #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement statements about Kyl: http://bit.ly/g7YuZK

4) Transcript from CNN reading Kyl's office's statement: http://bit.ly/e42FpP

*Anything marked with an asterisk is not intended to be a factual statement.
