Since Nine-Eleven (pronounced: <i>SINs NeyeN-EEE-lev-un)</i> is a salutation used in formal settings or on talk radio to indicate the beginning of a speech to create fear or beg for money.
"Since Nine-Eleven" has roots in Early American English. The first portion, the "since" part, comes from "after" or "late" or "from after" or something. The "Nine-Eleven" part derives from the numbers of a day when America started to use their guts more. The "Nine" part means the ninth month of the calendar year, and the "Eleven" part from the eleventh day of that month, not the other way around like the French would have you do it (or indeed anyone from that small and inconvenient part of the world known as "the rest of it"). And that's where "Since Nine-Eleven" came from.
Republicans use the phrase as a way to wake their audiences up, to be sure they are listening and to make sure they have or will soon crap their pants. Some events where the phrase has been used:
- Republican National Conventions
- depositions in defense of Scooter Libby
- bumper stickers
- Special Invitation-Only Townhall Meetings
- Special Republican Dinner/Fundraisers
- Funerals of Great Americans
- Conversations in which logic is used
- presidential campaign speeches for former mayors of New York City
- confirmation hearings when Americans have to remember that we do not torture
- as a rallying cry to block any Democratic bills
