Probably the silliest thing an unwed mom could do is express strong opinions about the sanctity of marriage and sit in judgement of those who do not share this world view.
Even sillier? Insisting, when you’re a single teen mom, that children raised in traditional “mom and dad” families are better off than those raised by gay parents.
Bristol Palin did both of these things in her blog post earlier today, while slamming President Obama for supporting gay marriage – and the Twitterverse went bananas.
Bristol Palin, daughter of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, should head up her mom’s next political campaign because she really knows how to stir things up and get attention for herself. And any PR is good PR, right? No, not really.
Obviously not content with her Dancing With The Stars fame, or sales from her memoir, or her upcoming reality show Life’s a Tripp (named after her son, Trip), Bristol Palin has decided to jump into the gay marriage fray – and surprise! She’s on the wrong side.
In her post shared earlier today, Palin shared her wisdom on the topic, roundly bashing Barack Obama for crediting his wife and daughters for triggering his change in perspective:
There have been times where Michelle and I have been sitting around the dinner table and we’re talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldn’t dawn on them that somehow their friends’ parents would be treated differently. It doesn’t make sense to them and, frankly, that’s the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective.
Titling her post Hail to the Chiefs – Malia and Sasha Obama, Palin labels this as Obama consulting with his teenage daughters rather than guiding them toward the undeniable truth that “as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home.” Because, she continues, “while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage.”
Well you can’t argue with THAT logic – you can only mock it.
And the one we love bestest of all:
