[It] would’ve been helpful for [President Obama] 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. … Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking. 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.”

Unwed mother Bristol Palin penned a blog post about President Obama’s announcement yesterday that he supports gay marriage, no doubt while taking it doggy-style from another man to whom she is not legally married. You know, since the sanctity of marriage so important to her.

Also, if you read Bristol’s entire post, it’s a weirdly-argued screed about Christian submission in household and how liberals are upset when wives submit to husbands but Obama “submits” to his teenaged daughters. Um, WHAT? I just can’t anymore. [Patheos via Politico] Keep reading »

Attention To Politicians: when cameras are rolling or even just present, it is not the best time for you to do a lispy impression of a gay guy’s voice when offered a pink tie. There is never a good time to impersonate a gay guy’s voice. But for fuck’s sake, you do it when cameras are around?

Mitt Romney learned this the hard way.

And this guy wants the nuclear codes? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

TIME magazine breastfeeding cover photo

Whoa. Hi there, TIME magazine. You went there, didn’t you?

I’m as pro-breastfeeding-in-public as one can be, but this cover photo the intentional provocation of this cover annoys me.  The 26-year-old mother Jamie Lynne Grumet is model-hot and that’s no accident; nor is it an accident that her child she is breastfeeding is three-years-old, an age which some may argue is “too old” to be nursing at their mama’s breast. I make no judgments about this mother’s attachment parenting or breastfeeding. But I wonder, will the visceral reaction to this provocative cover  — which I would place bets on being covered up at newsstands, a la Cosmopolitan titties —  do more harm to the parenting tactics she believes in than it will do good?
