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.

North Stokes High School

I guess Behethland and Tucker have solved the government education problem. Every student in America needs to attend North Stokes High School and have David Parker teach them Math and Physics. Wake up Toto, you're not in Stokes County any more.


Pronunciation: (an'ik-dōt"l, an"ik-dōt'l),
1. pertaining to, resembling, or containing anecdotes: an anecdotal history of jazz.
2. (of the treatment of subject matter in representational art) pertaining to the relationship of figures or to the arrangement of elements in a scene so as to emphasize the story content of a subject. Cf. narrative (def. 6).
3. based on personal observation, case study reports, or random investigations rather than systematic scientific evaluation: anecdotal evidence.

Please tell me you realize how silly this "I did all right in government schools so they must be fine" argument is.
