A very Hope-y Father’s Day


Barack Obama has an article in Parade Magazine about fathers. Evidently, “their job does not end at conception”. Who knew?

He castigated absent fathers: “I would often walk through the streets of Chicago’s South Side and see boys marked by that same absence – boys without supervision or direction or anyone to help them as they struggled to grow into men.” I’m not a single mother, but I think I can respond to that on behalf of all single mothers: Fuck you, Barack.
