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.

Rush on 'Doing Drugs'

"If people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up... Too many whites are getting away with drug use. Too many whites are getting away with drug sales. Too many whites are getting away with trafficking in this stuff. The answer to this disparity is not to start letting people out of jail because we're not putting others in jail who are breaking the law. The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them and send them up the river, too."

— Rush Limbaugh, political pundit and former consumer of huge amounts of illegally-obtained Oxycontin, on his radio show on Oct. 5, 1995.
