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.
(The Blast) - Meghan McCain appeared on MSNBC’s “The Last Word” with Lawrence O’ Donnell and tried her best to grill Michelle Bachmann by referring to her as a “poor man’s Sarah Palin.”
I think it’s important to note that Michelle Bachmann is not a leader, and she’s not the leader of the Republican party. Michelle Bachmann in my opinion is no better than a poor man’s Sarah Palin and I think the fact that MSNBC and Fox elected not to run this is admirable to the kind of journalism that Fox and MSNBC is airing. I think CNN should be ashamed of themselves for airing this. This is one rogue woman who couldn’t even look into the camera directly. I take none of it seriously, and I think if the Tea Party wants to put a candidate up for a response why don’t they have someone like Rand Paul who was elected on the Tea Party platform give that.
