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.

Sen Claire McCaskill (D-MO) 2006 ad: “We have paid every dime of our taxes”

(By Allahpundit, Hot Air) - Via Ben Smith, I think she’s technically telling the truth here. According to 'Politico', she didn’t start digging that six-figure hole in unpaid taxes on her plane until 2007, the year after this was made. So who knows? Maybe we’ll see another ad in this vein soon. “And I’m pleased to report that, as of last month, we really 'have' paid every dime of our taxes now. 'Finally'.” She may be a tax cheat, my friends, but at least she’s, er, honest-ish about it.
