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.

Video: Oddly enough, new celebrity Planned Parenthood ad doesn’t mention abortion

Scarlett Johansson Defends Planned Parenthood

(By Allahpundit, Hot Air) -
Via Media Blog, I’m almost disappointed. What happened to their usual talking point that they don’t use federal funds for abortions but only for their other services — which, of course, frees up money from other sources that would have gone towards those other services for more abortions instead? We’re five and a half hours from shutting down the federal government partly because of a standoff over PP’s abortion practice, yet you’d have not the slightest inkling of it from what you’re about to see. There’s not even a euphemism, like “population control” or something about “inconveniences.” Too bad.
