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 the Democrat Party

"Am I emotional? Yes, my firstborn was murdered. Am I angry? Yes, he was killed for lies and for a Neo-Con agenda to benefit Israel. My son joined the Army to protect America, not Israel."

"What they're saying, too, is like, it's OK for Israel to have nuclear weapons. But Iran or Syria better not get nuclear weapons. ... It's OK for Israel to occupy Palestine ... for the United States to occupy Iraq, but it's not OK for Syria to be in Lebanon. They're a bunch of (expletive) hypocrites."

Cindy Sheehan

I've said for the past few weeks that liberal Democrats shouldn't hitch their wagon to Sheehan's horse. If conservative Republicans stood with people who said anti-Semitic comments like Sheehan did, we would be crucified by the liberal Democrats and the media alike. Ann Coulter said last week that Sheehan was the spokeswoman for the Democrat Party... maybe Ann is right.
