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.

RE: 'Arizona Daily Star' Drops Ann Coulter's 'Shrill' Column

"Many readers find her shrill, bombastic, and mean-spirited. And those are the words used by readers who identified themselves as conservatives," the recently appointed Stoeffler wrote.

I know of no actual conservatives who dislike Ann Coulter's writing. I know plenty of whining moderates and semi-libs who like to pass themselves off as conservatives who dislike Ann. That would be because she writes about things that are actually conservative issues. This is as opposed to simply telling one's fellow cocktail partygoers how conservative you are. Many talk the talk. Only a few walk the walk.

Taking her place in the Star will be the Creators Syndicate column by fellow conservative Tony Snow...

Of course. Tony Snow is the conservative liberals love to hear. Tony Snow is to conservatism what McDonald's is to fine dining.
