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: Black Caucus: Whites Not Allowed

This is a rather racist group don't you think???

It is an utterly racist group, just like its counterpart in numerous state legislatures around the country. North Carolina's own legislative black caucus is a particularly noxious example of these black "Klans."

Although I haven't looked to be sure, I imagine part of their charter involves some language about battling racism. One has to wonder if it ever occurs to these simpletons that using racism to combat racism is like using rape, murder, and mayhem to combat violence. Probably not. These people sport self-sustaining egos the size of bull elephants. The fact that their efforts are dim witted is not likely to occur to them.

The other aspect of this is exclusivity, of course. It is so very ironic that these people exert exactly the same kind of exclusivity that their forebears fought against.
