10. Yes, they have lost the war
All their little selves. There were millions of folks marching in the streets, offering another path. Instead, the Republicans squandered a trillion dollars, hundreds of thousands of lives, and our national standing in the eyes of the world to . . . well, what? Bin Laden is still at large. The Taliban is resurgent in Afghanistan. Instead of a model of democracy in the Middle East, we have a civil war in Iraq, and Iran is preparing to establish and extend its hegemony in the region.

The solution to the horrible crime of September 11 was to find the surviving planners and perpetrators and bring them to justice. Instead, the Republicans launched two ruinously expensive wars. And you -- if you're lucky -- got a tax cut that will fill your gas tank. Once.
