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: Kill Saddam

Steve said: "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."

The reason for the furor is because he's a highly visible, influential, and outspoken moron who once again said something that had wise folks from all political leanings cringing.

Outside of right-wing political circles (you know — where moderates, progressives, and average Americans fed up with the Iraq War reside) most recognize Sheehan as a mother distraught over the death of her son.
