Via Ezra Klein, North Carolina Congressman Robin Hayes continues to insist that Saddam Hussein was behind 9/11 (I guess I don't need to mention that he's a Republican, do I?).

[Hayes] told CNN on Wednesday that the "evidence is clear" that Iraq was involved in the terrorist attacks against the United States on September 11, 2001.

"Saddam Hussein and people like him were very much involved in 9/11," Rep. Robin Hayes said.

Told no investigation had ever found evidence to link Saddam and 9/11, Hayes responded, "I'm sorry, but you must have looked in the wrong places."

Hayes, the vice chairman of the House subcommittee on terrorism, said legislators have access to evidence others do not.

Saddam Hussein and the people like him. I wonder what that could mean? Mustachioed authoritarian presidents who like to fish? Megalomaniacal novelists from Tikrit with a penchant for military dress? Or does he just mean Arabs in general, because one's as good (or as bad) as another? Close enough, right? This seems to be an underlying principle of conservative foreign policy right now. No, we didn't find WMDs, but we found evidence of possible WMD programs. Close enough. Saddam did not, as was claimed, have significant connections to al Qaeda, but he knew people who knew people who knew people. Close enough.

To point out the obvious once again, it's the continued parroting of conclusively discredited theories like this one that creates space for the the real nutballs to work. And the scary thing is that Hayes is squarely in the mainstream of his party.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
