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.

Icing on the Poop Cake

In terms of cliches, I'll add one about tearing down the termite infested house instead of wrapping it in siding.

Obviously, I wholeheartedly agree that the institution is beyond salvage, but is it possible for it to be any other way? Isn't it the idea that is irreparable? Won't the end result always be nothing more than lipstick on a pig?

I'll have more specifics later.

This ought to be great. I can hardly wait.
