A yoga studio near DC offered a 20 percent off sale ("9 + 11 = 20 PERCENT OFF!"), and a sex toy company soberly tweeted remembrance of "those lost, & honor those still fighting for freedom." But the most off-putting way to remember the terrorist attacks on 9/11 was by Rep. Louie Gohmert, who thinks of Sep. 11 as the anniversary of Benghazi, or as he says it, "BENGHAZI!!"

In fact, the last two presidents have abused their power in ways that would have made Nixon blush.
