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.
(By James Crugnale, Mediaite) - NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne went on a bizarre, anti-public breastfeeding tirade on his Twitter feed yesterday, later deleting his tweets without apology. The speedway champion tweeted he was grossed out to see a woman breastfeeding in a supermarket, hashtagging #nasty and said he didn’t feel like shopping or eating anymore after seeing it. After a woman told him she disagreed, he called her a “dumb b***h.” His remarks were surprising for a participant in a sport fast becoming popular with female fans.
