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.

Kill Saddam!

Apparently Pat Robertson's biggest mistake was being unaware that you are only allowed to call for the assassination of the head of a sovereign state if you are a journalist and/or there is a Democrat in the White House.

Please note that this article was written in 1997.

Of course we all know the real reason for the Pat Robertson furor was to relieve pressure from the Sheehan story by demonstrating that the right had their own set of screaming crazies. In actual fact, what Robertson did was little different than the actions of the very agencies who sought to pillory him.

Left, right, or indifferent, the hypocrisy of the American media is breathtaking.
