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: Kwanzaa: A Holiday From the FBI

Another great example of why Coulter is about nothing but bad journalism. While the information about the founder of Kwanzaa could be interesting, Coulter simply can’t report facts (and her opinions of those facts) without writing a diatribe that shoots from her position among all the other far-right shouters, targeting only who her audience perceives 'the enemy' to be.

She’s not interested in being a real and reasoned conservative journalist — like, for instance, Cal Thomas, whose columns I enjoy reading. She’s only interested in being a partisan stooge for those who like to read about what they already think, which is the only reason she has a career to begin with. Or maybe she just knows what pays the bills.

Or maybe I’m just analyzing her motives too much — maybe she’s just an ass.
