Last week, one of the last sticking points in reaching a budget deal to avoid government shutdown was whether Planned Parenthood would receive federal funding or not. Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) argued that abortion is “well over 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does,” when abortions actually account for only 3 percent of PPFA’s services. When confronted, his office said that it was “not intended to be a factual statement.”

Jon Stewart contributed his own “not intended to be a factual statement” about Kyl on last night’s Daily Show. Find out what it is, and hear his analysis of  ”the political strategy known as lying” by watching the clips below.

These clips originally aired on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, on April 11, 2011.
