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.

Barack Obama Goes to Church, Talks About His Faith Amid Internet Muslim Rumors

MASON CITY, Iowa (Fox News) — Democrat Barack Obama on Sunday confronted one of the persistent falsehoods circulating about him on the Internet.

He went to church.

His attendance here at the First Congregational United Church of Christ, with the news media in tow, was as much an observation of faith as it was a rejoinder to baseless e-mailed rumors that he is a Muslim and poses a threat to the security of the United States.

The UCC only slightly resembles a church. It's more of a weekly social justice pep rally.

I love the irony of Mitt Romney getting obliquely pilloried over being a Mormon, while Obama will probably get credited with mainstream Christianity. The UCC is more obviously an apostate cult than LDS is, but you will never hear that out of the news media.
