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: Liberals, hypocrites, etc.

Do you anxiously wait for 'Liberals' to make you mad?

Actually, I find liberals funny; they are such silly people. Now, if liberals were in power, they would be scary.

It's not hypocritical to encourage the development of alternative energy sources while continuing to live and do business in the present. Fuel companies advertise their own goals for developing cleaner fuel technologies while continuing to sell the same old gas. Are they also hypocrites, Tanya?

It would be hypocritical if they are preaching to people about how we are killing the environment if we drive SUVs and such and then they go and ride around in SUVs themselves. In other words, if you're a tree hugger, you better be driving one of those Flintstones cars if you want me to take you seriously.

But The Hypocrite Club isn't exclusive, Tanya. Consider, for instance, Rush Limbaugh. What's your excuse for him? Sneaking mouthfuls of Oxycontin during his radio show, he championed the War On Drugs and called for jail time for users. That's what you call a hypocrite. And from what I can remember of that particular fading star, he is not a liberal.

Rush would be a hypocrite if he was STILL using Oxycontin. Rush should be commended for admitting to his problem and going to rehab to clean himself up.

I'm not sure who Debra J. Saunders is, but - knowing journalist types fairly well - she'd probably write an article praising Sir Branson for the right fee and, of course, would gladly hop a Lear to get there for the exclusive interview, drinking all the free booze she could get on the way.

I like how you like to take cheap shots at ALL conservative women; if it's not me or Ann Coulter, it's now Debra J. Saunders. You don't like independent thinking women, Strother? Are we a threat to you? If you think that's funny, then you should get a good idea about how I feel when I read some of your posts.

Since her job includes writing for Townhall.com, she is to have a problem with anything resembling environmentalism. That's her job, writing for folks like you. If Branson's Virgin corporation floated her boat, she'd sing a different tune, trust me.

Heaven forbid for columnists to write articles for "folks" like us.

Yeah, yeah, I know - Ahnold is actually a liberal, too - but in sheep's clothing - right? See, I've learned a lot here on the 'ol BP.

It's good that you're learning something. It's better late than never.
