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: Idiocy in D.C., Progress in Baghdad


The surge is working--that's what matters.

Sure it is, Bill. Democracy is about to break out all over Iraq any moment now. Bless your spinning, neocon heart.

Of course I did.

The whole thing consists of whining about impediments to his pet project: the forceful democratization of Iraq. It was a lost cause when we embarked on it, it is no less so now.

The "surge" is laughable in absolute military terms. The operational minutia that Kristol and the neocon press get excited over amounts to whistling past the graveyard.

He was finished after the subtitle, he just neglected to stop writing.
