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.

Inside Move: Israel backs L.A. official

Israel now officially thinks Steven Spielberg "Munich" is "superficial" and "pretentious."

Earlier this week, Daily Variety asked for comment from the Israel Foreign Ministry on whether the public comments from its L.A. consul general, Enod Danoch, in which he criticized the director's portrayal of Israel's counterterrorism policy, were on behalf of the government or simply the personal views of the diplomat.

Actually, I just assumed that superficial and pretentious were synonyms for Spielberg. Eventually I suspect he will become another unintentional Hollywood self-satire. Originally I thought this was going to be about the Munich massacre itself and I thought that finally we would see some balance out of the lately Muslim-apologetic California movie machine. I should have known better.

I wonder why Hollyweird has declined to make a movie about Beslan? Oh wait, that would put the Islamo-fascist child-rapists in a bad light. Never mind.
