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: Edwards Home County's Largest

Nothing is surprising about this story. Of course his home is the most valuable in NC’s Orange County! Edwards is a very successful lawyer and a candidate in the upcoming '08 Presidential election. Edwards’s political peers with the same political aspirations are wealthy, too. Matter of fact, our current president — Dubya — has a big, pricey pad of his own; Prairie Chapel Ranch is a 1583 acre estate. But so what?

I realize that this Carrington guy aims to stir resentment and jealously in the voting public, but — when you play that game — you basically illustrate that it’s nothing but rich guys (and gals) at the top of every political heap. At least Edwards is a self-made man, unlike our current president.

Further, I thought that class conflict was the weapon of socialists and Marxists. I guess everybody’s gotta use it these days. To paraphrase Jon Stewart, I guess it’s time for “the fake news” over at Carolina Journal.
