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’s lost intentions

Interesting perspective from a college student:

Cindy Sheehan’s behavior is tarnishing her son’s memory and robbing him of his valor, his bravery and the sacrifice he made.

Maybe she is a grieving mother who began this whole crusade with the intention of achieving justice for her son.

But if she continues, her son will be remembered for his rabid mother and not the gift he gave his country.

And if you need any more evidence that the radical left is taking advantage of a mentally unbalanced woman:

As is the case with most mothers, Cindy Sheehan feared for her son before he left for Iraq, so much so that she was willing to help him avoid his impending tour. She offered to run him over with a car.
