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.

The enemies of free speech are on the march--Part 3

Enjoy this website while you can. The enemies of free speech — ever ready to shut up anyone with whom they disagree — are out to terminate free-swinging commentary encouraged by this and other web pages.

The Federal Election Commission has been grappling with the issue as to whether and how free political speech on the Internet should be "regulated [read muzzled]."

Nope, no jackboots here. Nothing to see. Move on.

Add this to the list of tyrannies we've suffered in the interest of furthering George's Big Adventure in the Middle East:

President Bush signed the bill in the dark of night, making it clear that he didn't like it, but confident the courts would throw it out. He should have known better. Why did he think the Senate liberals were unconstitutionally filibustering his court nominees? He must have known the courts are filled with political hacks who interpret the Constitution according to their socialist precepts. The conventional wisdom is Mr. Bush did not want to get the volatile McCain riled up again just when he needed the senator's backing for the Iraq war. The Supreme Court later rubber-stamped the McCain-Feingold Law.
