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

Jerry Seinfeld Goes On The Telly And Tells The British That Their Royal Wedding Is An ‘Absurd’ ‘Circus Act’

(By Jon Bershad, Mediaite) - Yesterday, Jerry Seinfeld proved an old show biz rule; the ballsiest way to promote a show in a foreign country is to go on their TV and mock their royal family and their most beloved institutions. Seinfeld appeared on the British morning show 'Daybreak' to talk up a new comedy special and gave his thoughts on the royal wedding, calling it a “circus act” and explaining how the royals aren’t actually “special people.” Unsurprisingly, some of the reaction to Seinfeld’s comments overseas has been a little bit chilly. I suppose we should just hope Seinfeld never tries to do a stand up tour in somewhere like North Korea.
