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: Health chief given salary authority

Let's see. There are four Republicans and one Democrat on the Stokes board. I know, this must be some of that compassionate conservatism we hear about from on high.

No doubt the pubbies on the board would layer us with truckloads of rhetoric defending this. We would hear every loose justification and argument why this is not just rank socialism.

I can't imagine why anyone bothers to maintain a Democrat Party organization in Stokes County. The GOP has been implementing their agenda, with one brief hiatus, for years now. Of course, previous boards, while no less socialistic, at least had the benefit of a few members who weren't solidly in the third sigma below mean on intelligence.
