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: RE: Texan Ron Paul enters race for GOP nomination

Steve opines: "The True Believers have already started excoriating Paul, calling him "nutcase" and "fruitcake." Since Paul is, by any measure, the most conservative member of Congress, this behavior lends credence to the school of thought that the GOP is no longer the conservative party in America."

The GOP establishment has always made fun of conservatives... This isn't anything new. They did the same thing to Reagan all the time.

"Also, since Paul has been re-elected nine times, the GOP machine's assertions that he has only a fringe following is patently absurd."

Now I wouldn't go that far because there are many members of Congress who are way out there in outer space. I'm not saying Ron Paul is one, but there are quite a few in the House.
