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

Nancy Pelosi Logs 90,000 Air Force Miles, Asked for 'Chocolate Strawberries'

Watchdog uncovers more extravagances by former House speaker's team

(By Bob Unruh, WorldNetDaily) -
Officials at Judicial Watch, the watchdog organization that hunts down and exposes government misbehavior, say they have uncovered more extravagances on the part of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose office apparently told the Air Force members wanted chocolate-covered strawberries for Pelosi's birthday.

Not just any chocolate-covered strawberries, either.

"Dark chocolate preferred," said the instructions to the Air Force, which provided Pelosi with commuting services to and from California while she was Speaker of the House.
