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: Republicans refuse to give Bruce Springsteen his glory days

Meanwhile — according to the Fayetteville Times — the N.C. Republican Party is raising money by auctioning off tickets to Clay Aiken's Dec. 22 concert in Raleigh. Aiken is a Democrat, says the N.C. Democratic Party, citing his registration information on the state Board of Elections Web site.

Nice going, Republicans. Blackball Bruce Springsteen — a true American icon — and fundraise via Clay Aiken, an 'American Idol' who's a Democrat at that. What, Ted Nugent (the Republican musician) isn't touring?

Getting pissed off at musicians for being 'liberals' is like getting pissed off at Baptist ministers for being 'conservatives.'
