Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Not Practicing What They Preach?

(Fox News) - Some of the stars of Al Gore's Live Earth concerts to help save the planet from climate change are being accused of hypocrisy for leading environmentally unfriendly lives.

The Daily Mail reports Madonna — who will sing at the show in Wembly, England — used private jets and commercial airlines to fly a 100-person entourage on a 56 date world tour — and owns a fleet of gas-guzzling cars.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers, also scheduled to play in London, reportedly produced 220 tons of carbon dioxide with their private jets during six months of their last world tour — about 22 times what the average person produces in a year.
