I Don't Know Why Anyone Pays Attention to Anything Bristol Palin Says, Even If It's Just to Talk About What a Dumbass She Is

But since she wants to play this game, I think a more accurate way to report her ignorant comments on President Obama's (let's be honest, politically calculated and long-overdue but still quite welcome) stance on gay marriage would be the following (emphases mine):

"While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads. 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. As great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home," said unwed teenage mother Bristol Palin.

Seriously, you have every right to your opinion in this country, no matter how uninformed. What you don't have the right to is being taken seriously when every word out of your mouth is a hypocritical stupidity.

Why the fuck are we even pretending she's famous in some way?

Well, honestly, I agree. A kind, loving mother and father would be an ideal family for raising a child.

I also think it would be ideal if I were a billionaire and when I passed gas it smelled like ginger snaps.

There are 400,000 children in adoption agencies and foster care in this country. You can't tell me a loving gay family wouldn't be better than that.

Because there is always a chance that Brisol will be spit out the bottom of the porn industry and I have a fascination to see that.

Because the media feeds the people irrelevant crap and there is enough ignorance in this country to keep it coming.

While it's probably true we shouldn't give Bristol the attention she so obviously desires, she fascinates me as a lover of the absurd. She's just so hypocritical that she's almost unreal.
