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.

MSNBC's Ed Schultz Denounces Stewart/Colbert Rally (and Glenn Beck)

(By Meredith Jessup, The Blaze) - Liberal radio and MSNBC host Ed Schultz took to the airwaves Friday to condemn comedians Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert and their “Restore Sanity and/or Fear” rally.

Schultz seemed puzzled by the rally’s lack of seriousness, saying he didn’t know if the rally as “a spoof, a joke, a promotion on their part… what’s happening here?”

In addition, Schultz didn’t pass up a chance to attack conservative radio and TV host Glenn Beck, deriding Beck as a “fraudulent pig,“ a ”drunk“ and a ”phony“ he has ”no respect for.” Nice.

Schultz is the second liberal radio talker to come out against the Stewart/Colbert rally planned for Saturday. Liberal host Bill Press eloquently dismissed the event as “a big masturbation festival on the National Mall.”
