Bully Pulpit

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.

Hey Steve: I don't want anybody to speak from some type of talking points... I want people to speak their conscience, which I know you do.

My "kook" reference was in reference to your last sentence:

"Sorry, watching this detestable little Nero fiddle while Rome burns is more than I can stomach."
That sentence sounded like a "kook" statement in the Howard Dean/Michael Moore mold.
