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.

Of Turd Sandwiches and Giant Douches

While this particular episode alluded to the Kerry vs. Bush race, it applies to the 2000 race, too.

In spades. Gore is a much bigger douchebag than Kerry, although Kerry tries very hard. At first, I was having trouble with Bush as a turd sandwich, mostly because it just didn't quite say it all. But after thinking about it, it's subtle, yet oh so appropriate.

When your choice is between a giant douche and a turd sandwich, it's pretty much a toss up.

That's assuming you fall for the silly zero sum game argument used by supporters of the two factions. There were other choices and you can always abstain. I expect to be casting no more than two or three votes this year.

And in reality, our turd sandwich in the White House really stinks.

Getting worse every day. I can smell it all the way down here in Westfield.
