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.

NASCAR Southern Modified Driver Tim Brown Loves Racing, But Regrets Role in MadHouse Racing Reality TV Show

(By Marty O'Brien, Short Track Action) - When Tim Brown looks up and sees packed stands for a NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour race, as he did at Langley Speedway a year ago, some of the regret of agreeing to do reality television subsides. And when a fan plunks down $15 for a t-shirt bearing Brown's likeness, the notoriety doesn't sting so much.

Other than that, Brown sounds like a guy who'd prefer to forget about his stint on the racing reality show MadHouse, which followed Modified drivers though the 2009 season at Bowman Gray in Winston-Salem, N.C. and aired on the History Channel for 12 episodes in early 2010.

Brown, who returned to Langley on Saturday to defend his title in the Newport News Shipbuilding 150, would rather folks thought of him as the guy who rallied to win here a year ago. And he certainly wishes they knew, that as manager of the suspension department at Michael Waltrip Racing, he's easy to work for and appreciative of his subordinates efforts.
