    Post-9/11 Bullshit You May Have Forgotten

    This is an amazing Twitter thread recapping some of the big stories of the Bush administration, American media, and Democrats post-9/11. I had forgotten so much of this stuff. It's worth following the whole thread. There's even a tweet from Monica Lewinsky.

    Remember the do-not-play list they sent a bunch of radio stations? Here's a good song about it:

    In that thread, there's links to lists of banned songs along with TV shows and movies in which the World Trade Center was edited out.

    Interesting to consider, but I think it's confusing and not largely accurate to use the term "ban" in describing the effort (self imposed, not government imposed) on the part of corporations to discourage playing possibly offensive stuff.

    A debatable effort, sure.

    I was in Georgia for a week during the run-up/beginning of the Iraq war. Definitely remember multiple "BOYCOTT FRANCE" billboards, and restaurant proclaiming "We support our troops; we have no French wines".

    Random memory I have-in a bowl game, Texas Tech got two 15-yard penalties for one endzone celebration because it disrespected The Troops. I think I remember that right?

    Wake campus version: Anyone else remember the college republicans printing flyers that read "Viva Bush! (Amazingly, there is a use for French)"?
