Bully Pulpit

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

Ann Coulter On Media’s Vetting Of GOP Candidates: ‘Can We Get The Ad To Find Obama’s Cocaine Dealer?’

(By Alex Alvarez, Mediaite) - Conservative commenter Ann Coulter stopped by 'Fox & Friends' on Sunday to discuss her latest book, 'Demonic: How the Liberal Mob in Endangering America' and to weigh in on the "mainstream media's" apparent obsession with GOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann.

Coulter started things off by noting a recent article in 'The New Yorker' which traced Bachmann’s family back to the 1800s to determine whether they had, as she claimed, settled in Iowa way back when. Contrast this to the media’s coverage of Barack Obama during his first campaign for President. Coulter notes that it was mostly positive, and had nowhere near the same degree of obsessive vetting into his past or his claims.

She also made note of the ad recently taken out by a Ron Paul supporter in Texas, searching for women who may have had a sexual history with Texas governor Rick Perry. “Can we get the ad to find, you know, Obama’s cocaine dealer now that he’s two years into his presidency?”
