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

Video: Jon Stewart rips Chris Matthews on “forgot Obama was black” moment

Ed Morrissey: Jon Stewart calls Chris Matthews “a Scotch away from becoming Ron Burgundy,” and that’s not the best line in this clip from Mediaite, where Stewart and Wyatt Cenac tear into Chris Matthews and his “big thinking” on race after the State of the Union speech. In fact, Cenac delivers blow after blow, and Stewart wisely leaves it in his hands:

Stewart seems to have cornered the market on ridiculing the Left in the American comedy world, mainly by default. Of course, Matthews makes himself an easy target — so easy, in fact, that many people on the Left seemed reluctant to come to his defense yesterday. If they’re tiring of Matthews’ schtick, MS-NBC may be left with nothing but Jesse Ventura fans … all three of them.
