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: The Left's Shrill Howling Vs. Neo-Con Excuses

...she isn't Michael Moore.

That's true. You can barely see Moore's lips moving when Sheehan speaks. You have to give Robertson one thing: At least his dumb remarks were his own.

She was a regular American...

Hardly. Regular Americans don't offer to run over their offspring with their cars in an effort to help them avoid military duty. Especially when said offspring have no desire or intention of avoiding said duty.

...the majority of Americans are now acknowledging was a mistake.

So you keep saying, but I don't see any convincing evidence to support that. The media keep shouting about a couple of extremely doubtful surveys, one of which has turned out to be heavily skewed. What they don't shout about is that at least one of those surveys also indicates that Americans don't want the Administration to leave Iraq before the job is done.

But the neo-con excuses are getting people killed.

I hate to be the one to break it to you Sparky, but Michael Moore has a substantial amount of blood on his hands. It's called aid and comfort. Every time one of those smug morons uses the term "freedom fighter" to describe a Muslim maniac with a bomb, an American soldier is put further in harm's way. Cindy Sheehan may not be directly responsible for her son's own death, but she is culpable in the deaths of any more of her son's fellow soldiers. If I ever met her, the first question I would have to ask her is, "How do you sleep?"
