The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.
A good article by one of my favorites at WND, Vox Day. If George Bush is so intent on "exporting democracy," maybe he should try exporting a little in Washington, DC. He can start in the chambers of the Supreme Court.
