Factual Statements and vice versa

In a recent discussion over whether to defund Planned Parenthood, John Kyl (R - AZ) said that "90 percent" of Planned Parenthood services are related to abortion. When it was pointed out that the actual percentage is about 3%, an aide for Kyl sent the now infamous message saying that Mr. Kyl's remark was "not intended to be a factual statement."

Well, of course, a comedic gem of this nature could not go quietly. It has been picked up most notably by Stephen Colbert.

So, from now on, you can say whatever you'd like as long as you include the following caveat:

#NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement


So, here we go:
Tax break for the rich create jobs (NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement)
Rush Limbaugh is a God (NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement)
Glenn Beck is right on the money (NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement)
Fox is Fair and Balanced (NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement)

Let me know if you have more.
