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

Alan Colmes Falsely Claims Liberal Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) Was Spat Upon by Tea Party

(Breitbart.tv) - When it comes to lying about the Tea Party, liberals can't even keep their own stories straight. In trying to defend Rep. Andre Carson's outrageous statement that the Tea Party would like to see black people "hanging on a tree", Fox News analyst Alan Colmes claimed that Rep. John Lewis was spat on by Tea Party members.

For the record: Rep. Emanuel Cleaver claimed he had been spat on until a video showed that it was merely errant spital from a screaming protester. Furthermore, Rep. Carson is the one who claimed he and Rep. Lewis were called the "N-Word" by Tea Party members even though four different videos of the precise moment in question show no such thing.

Before sliming your political opponents Mr. Colmes, at least get your lies straight.
