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: Executed gang leader's supporters...

Williams was overheard joking at one time about the noises one of his victims made while he was in his death throes.

Was that regarding the victims in this case? If so, when and to whom was the statement made? Just curious.

Whether or not Williams actually wrote any of the children's books is arguable at best.

Whether or not many people actually write any of their own books is arguable at best. Your point?

Don't get me wrong about this — I'm torn on the issue of the death penalty. But murder is murder, even when murder is instigated by the state. While I generally respect most all opinions on this issue, I do find it quite contradictory that someone can be 100% 'pro-life' and 'pro-death penalty.' I know more than a few pro-lifers that are also 100% against the death penalty; I fully respect that position.
