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.

Tucker Carlson goes after Al Sharpton

It’s about time we had a feisty intellectual debate on Hannity. Too bad it took Hannity’s absence to get it.

As many good points that Tucker made in this debate, Ramesh Ponnuru at the end nails The Rev’s problem: he doesn’t trust law enforcement. This law was crafted in such a way that makes racial profiling illegal, but that doesn’t matter to the Rev because he thinks it’s going to happen anyway, so the law be damned. If that’s the case, then what’s the point of the law? If a cop breaks the law he/she is held to account just like a citizen. And in an age of video tape and such, I’d think it’d be easier now than ever to catch law enforcement ‘racial profiling’.

In the end though Tucker is right about the Left using this as a way to get the Hispanic vote in 2010. As @iheal said on twitter, they don’t want to lose their ‘voter importation plan’. That’s what this is all about. They want to get the Hispanics all fired up that this is a violation of their rights, when in fact it hasn’t even happened yet and the law specifically protects their rights.

The problem is that this isn’t simply a republican law. It was heavily bipartisan with I believe a 70% approval rate among the AZ population. So if they can’t blame Republicans alone, they who do they blame next? All non-minorities?
