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.

From a Rush Listener...

I listen to Rush on a daily basis. He's a political pundit/entertainer...nothing more, nothing less. He is very good at what he does.

Listening to Rush, he doesn't come across as a spokesman for the Christian right... Matter of fact, some of the stuff he talks about is rather R-rated. He's more of a fiscal conservative or a constitutionalist rather than a social conservative. I've never heard him quote scripture or anything like that...

Rush was making light of the fact yesterday that he got caught with Viagra. Here is what he said on the radio about it:

"I've been racking my brain... I'm trying to figure out how Bob Dole's luggage got on my airplane. I told the doctor, 'Look, I'm worried about the next election.'"

"The people at Customs were as nice as they could be; they just didn't believe me when I told them that I got those pills from the Clinton Library gift shop. They told me at the Clinton Library gift shop that they were just little blue M&Ms."

"I know a lot of people in Washington don't even need Viagra; they just look at themselves in the mirror and the problem is solved."
Rush can laugh at himself, which is good. :-)
