Homework Assignment

This is a bit dated, but better late than never...

  1. Read Rudy Giuliani's speech given to the Republican National Convention.
  2. Count the number of times he utters the words "September 11". (Hint: it's the same number as three times four.)
  3. Ask yourself what it means for American politics when someone can invoke September 11 that many times in a partisan political speech without shame.
