Bristol Palin, daughter of former prominent American Sarah Palin, put her name to a blog post today wherein she criticizes Barack Obama for allowing the experiences of his children to inform his politics. “So let me get this straight,” writes Ms. Palin, “it’s a problem if my mom listened too much to my dad, but it’s a heroic act if the President made a massive change in a policy position that could affect the entire nation after consulting with his teenage daughters?”
Ms. Palin continues: “ 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.” She concludes that Malia and Sasha Obama are teenagers who have watched “one too many episodes of Glee.” If only they’d been watching Dancing With the Stars, none of this would have happened! We’ll look forward to the Obama Administration’s response.
