Taking a break from her busy responsibilities as a single mother, 21-year-old Bristol Palin took a moment to write a blog post criticizing President Obama’s support of gay marriage today. Unfortunately she didn’t take enough time to consider the hypocrisy of what she wrote when she questioned how much Obama’s daughters, Malia and Sasha, influenced his coming out of support so to speak. She wrote:
“While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads,” wrote Palin.
She continued, “In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview.”
Ah, the old, ‘but we’ve been doing it this way forever’ logic. Ever heard of progression, Bristol? I’m more concerned with why she’s not nearly half as invested in thinking about the fatherly lessons her child is missing out on while her baby daddy Levi Johnston focuses on his “modeling” career, tell-all book, and coming baby with his new chick. If needing a mother and a father in the home and tradition are the only arguments she has, I’d say she lost this round, although she does come up with another interesting justification for why President Obama declared his support of gay marriage: TV.
“In this case, it would’ve been nice if the President would’ve been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee.”
And with that I would like to thank Bristol for her not well thought-out entertainment today. Your job is done and you have successfully earned all the seats in Alaska that your mother is not currently occupying.
