Bristol Palin has taken to her blog to blast President Obama’s shift in support of gay marriage.

In a blog post titled “Hail to the Chiefs – Malia and Sasha Obama,” the daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin suggests that the reason for Obama’s change of heart was his daughters watching too many episodes of the television show “Glee.”

Palin quotes the president’s interview with ABC in which he says, “You know, Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples.”

She offers the president this parenting advice: “In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends (sic) parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage.”

She continues, “I guess we can be glad that Malia and Sasha aren’t younger, or perhaps today’s press conference might have been about appointing Dora the Explorer as Attorney General because of her success in stopping Swiper the Fox.

“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.’ ”
