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.

'It's Ugly As Hell!' ... Citizens Flip After N.J. Forces Solar Panels on Their Streets

North Jersey towns object to solar panels

The large rectangular solar panels that PSE&G has been installing on utility poles across North Jersey are not winning style points from residents and local officials, who call them hideous, an eyesore, even "ugly as hell."

"I'm all in favor of solar energy. It's a great technology," said Wyckoff Township Committeeman Brian Scanlan. "That said, this project is an example of good intentions going awry."

Scanlan is concerned about the look of the 3-foot-by-5-foot panels perched on poles "especially where you have a neighborhood with front yards that are relatively small."

Fascinating that people think the panels are unsightly. Take a look at the picture and tell me that you think the poles with all the wires hanging down are pretty. Give me a break. The people complaining are probably the same idiots that tear down their houses to build a mcmansion with an over sized garage to fit your hideous monster truck into.
