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.

Cindy Sheehan, spokeswoman for Cindy Sheehan

Andy said: "Ann Coulter said last week that Sheehan was the spokeswoman for the Democrat Party... maybe Ann is right."

Using that sort of logic, Pat Robertson is the spokesman for the Republican Party, but I'm sure no sensible Republican would claim him.

Cindy Sheehan is a spokeswoman for Cindy Sheehan and whoever else is following her around. Pat Robertson is the spokesman for Pat Robertson, his TV programs and dealings, and whoever else follows him around.

Coulter — who, as usual, must be having a drought of meaningful subject matter — needs for Sheehan to be the spokeswoman for the Democratic Party.

(By the way, it's the Democratic Party. Why does it pain Republicans so much to say that? Beats me.)

Let's stick a fork in the topics of Sheehan and Robertson... They're done and are cooling right next to Natalee Holloway, Robert Blake, and Tom Cruise. Actually, Cruise is overcooked...
