10. "Things changed on 9/11"
Of course they changed, no disputing that. But they use it as a rubber stamp to ANYTHING you say about Bush or the current crop of Republicans. It doesn't matter if its foreign policy, domestic, taxes, gasoline, environment, etc. etc. etc. - once you get them in the corner they spout "well, things changed on 9/11 and that's why we are doing it this way".

That kills me.
