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: Democrats at War

Pelosi has demonstrated repeatedly that her intelligence is well into the second standard deviation below the mean, maybe even into the third. However, this is an excellent illustration of what is wrong with democracy.

The question proponents of democracy never want to answer is, what if the majority is wrong? This example represents a closely related question: What if the majority is stupid?
