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.

Democrat Party

Coulter — who, as usual, must be having a drought of meaningful subject matter...

As long as there are liberals around, doing what liberals inevitably do, Ann will never have a drought of meaningful subject matter.

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

You have that backwards. Republicans use it because it pains Democrats so much to hear it. It removes that subliminal connotation with democracy, which most assume to be good, and replaces it with a subliminal connotation with bureaucrats, which is more accurate, but less good to the average American's ears.

Let's stick a fork in the topics of Sheehan and Robertson...

I vocally predicted you would run from Sheehan within 24 hours of Susan Estrich's column. I should have posted the prediction. The directive has gone out from on high, the sound of rhetorical rubber squealing will be absolutely deafening during the next 48 hours.
