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: RE: REVIEW: DA VINCI CODE, THE

Have you even read the book?

Silly boy, of course I read it, almost a year ago. Also, since I generally give an author at least two chances, I also read The Digital Fortress. Both were utter garbage. Contrived plots, paper-thin characters, wooden dialog, and a writing style for which any middle school student would get a D- in creative writing.

If you want to read an actual novel by an actual author on the same subject, read Umberto Eco's Foucault's Pendulum. Brown is a hack and whoever is encouraging him to publish should be ashamed of themselves.

That's probably why it spent so many months on the best seller lists, huh? Oh i know, everybody except you, Steve, is too stupid to know any better. Well, i've seen the movie and read the book (along with millions of others) and found them both entertaining.

Go ahead and try to disagree without coming off as an uncompromising elitist. I dare you.

Have you considered trying more fiber in your diet?
