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 To Ann Coulter: If O’Reilly Can Lecture You On Science ‘You’re Off The Rails’

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Ann Coulter recently made some headlines telling Bill O’Reilly that despite conventional wisdom, exposure to radiation could actually be good for someone’s health. Ed Schultz caught the segment and suggested that the often “toxic” Coulter is “predictable,” since her argument proves she doesn’t care about science and just cares about being provocative.

Schultz claimed whenever Coulter is on television you can be sure there is “misinformation,” since although it might be possible low levels of radiation could fight disease, the type of radiation now in Japan would be harmful. At first Schultz even praised O’Reilly for being skeptical of Coulter’s theory, but such praise was short-lived. Schultz then argued O’Reilly was no scientific expert given his “tide goes in, tide goes out” theory to explain religion and managed to slam Coulter and O’Reilly in one swift statement, saying “when Bill O’Reilly is lecturing you about your shoddy science, you know you’re off the rails.”

Yet no matter who you’re rooting for in this nuclear food fight, at least everyone could find some mild amusement in the graphic of Coulter glowing green throughout the entire segment.
