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.

New Tone: Anti-Tea Party Protester Yells Profanity at 14-Year-Old Girl

(By Katie Pavlich, Townhall.com) - As always, anti-tea party and pro-union protesters are keeping it classy in Madison.

Once again, so much for the new tone. I think the White House Bullying Task Force should take a look at this situation--a middle aged man yelling "Go to your room," "You f***** little brat!" at 14-year-old Tricia Willoughby while she was speaking at the Madison tea party rally over the weekend.

I applaud the young lady for her courage and for avoiding the sheeple mentality many of her young peers have.
