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

MSNBC's Chris Matthews Compares Rick Perry to 1960′s Segregationist Bull Conner

(By Billy Hallowell, The Blaze) - MSNBC‘s talking heads won’t stop hammering Texas Gov. Rick Perry this week. With their fists continuing to fly, both Ed Shultz and Chris Matthews have attempted to convince audiences that the governor is a racist.

First, there was “The Ed Show’s” suspect editing of a video clip in order to make it seem as though Perry was making a racist remark about America’s first black president (Shultz has since offered a pseudo-apology).

Then, last night, Chris Matthews made a startling association — that Rick Perry is like “Bull Connor with a smile.”
