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.

Pants Suit

(Fox News) - The couple owning the dry cleaners that was sued by a Washington DC judge for $54 million after his pants were temporarily lost — is getting some help with their legal bills.

Groups advocating tort reform and supporters of Jin Nam Chung and Soo Chung got together for a fundraiser last night — and the famous pants were on display — complete with a security guard.

The Chungs won the lawsuit — but ended up with about $100,000 in legal bills. The fundraiser pulled in about $64,000.
