Now we must as freely say, though without designing the least disrespect, certainly, to that distinguished individual or his praiseworthy coadjutors, that it seems to us they might find them anywhere. The truth is,and the truth in this case is a matter of so much disappointment and regret to us, that we cannot suppress the expression of it,there is a most lamentable want of tact, not to say talent, in these pub- lications.
That year, Senator Kyl made a speech on the Senate floor during a looming government shutdown crisis in which he stated that Planned Parenthood spent over ninety percent of its budget towards abortion-related activities. Everybody goes to clinics, to hospitals, to doctors, and so on.
Some people go to Planned Parenthood. But you dont 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 thats well over 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does.
This wasnt just a little untrue. Politifact quickly chimed in with a correction: Presented with the fact that he had just told a gross, mammoth lie on the Senate floor, Kyl had an excuse. His office released a statement saying that his remark was not intended to be a factual statement.

Animated most by antiwar fervor, this group included not just writers you probably know like Susie Madrak and Chris Bowers, but others who had smaller followings but no less talent. It also included lawyers and community organizers who had brilliant minds and a willingness to sacrifice in the cause of fighting the Bush administration and bringing about an end to their adventure in Iraq.
Some would become soldiers in Barack Obamas field organization, and others would serve as delegates at the National Convention. Politicians began to flock to our meetings, seeking our approval or at least to mute our criticisms. Even Pat Toomey made an appearance when he began to think about running for Senate.
Cable news started featuring some of our articles during special segments they developed to look at what was being discussed on the blogs. But for all our energy and talent, I dont think any of us ever got a dime from George Soros. We didnt get a dime from anyone.
