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: Censorship in Stokes County (N.C.) Schools...

If this can be verified, it needs to be brought to the attention of the press and NCDPI. I doubt whoever perpetrated it would want to have to explain to the public why they chose to censor political speech. It may also potentially be illegal.

Oh, but wait, I forgot. The government-run schools are bastions of academic and intellectual freedom. It's just crazy old Steve who thinks they are nothing but socialist indoctrination centers. There must be some perfectly reasonable explanation for how this enhances academic quality.
