Bristol Palin is, predictably, receiving a swift and solid Twitter smackdown after speaking out against President Barack Obama's support of gay marriage.

Palin said, in short, that heterosexuals make better parents, Obama is a pushover who lets kids script his policy statements, and Glee might make you gay.

Shortly after writing her blog post ripping Obama, Bristol's hearing about it.

A few comments directed at the unwed 21-year-old mother, who says "in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home," are as follows:

Bristol Palin Book Signing

JWoww: "Bristol should keep her uneducated ignorant mouth shut... If Ur living in the past u wouldn't have a kid w/out marriage #hypocrite. It's 2012!"

"My best friend will get married one day and not just have civil union with his man. Stop hating people," added the outspoken Jersey Shore star.

Sherri Shepherd: "Sara Palin educated Bristol... and not blaming Bristol, but I'm blaming Bristol being young & not excercising good judgment."

Samantha Ronson: "'We know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home.' really bristol palin? how's your kid doing?"

Apparently President Obama's support for gay marriage, which he announced yesterday, does not sit well with Bristol Palin. Nor does the Fox hit Glee.

In an anti-gay marriage blog post aimed at Obama's first statement advocating same-sex marriage rights, Sarah Palin's daughter does not hold back.

In short, Bristol feels Barack is a stupid man, a weak leader and a bad father. Why? Because of his daughters' role in his evolving gay marriage stance.

The President of the United States

"While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads," says the 21-year-old spawn of Sarah.

"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."

The unwed mother, whose baby daddy is totally MIA, continues, "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."

Unless they're Levi Johnston.

In the wake of President Obama's support for gay marriage, his all-but-certain Republican foe in the 2012 presidential election reaffirmed that he is opposed to it.

Mitt Romney said he is opposed to both civil unions and same-sex marriage, in fact. The former Massachusetts governor told Denver Fox affiliate KDVR-TV:

"Well, when these issues were raised in my state of Massachusetts, I indicated my view, which is I do not favor marriage between people of the same gender, and I do not favor civil unions if they are identical to marriage other than by name."

Mitt Romney for President

"My view is the domestic partnership benefits, hospital visitation rights, and the like are appropriate but that the others are not," added Romney.

Obama's support came following Tuesday's passage of North Carolina Amendment One, a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, civil unions and domestic partnerships, and Vice President Joe Biden support for gay marriage.

He made the end of his "evolution" on the topic official in an interview with ABC News' Robin Roberts, which aired on Good Morning America today.

Former presidential hopeful John Edwards was more "a spectator than a participant" at a 2007 meeting in which his now-deceased wife, Elizabeth, railed at two political donors because they had maintained ties to his mistress, Rielle Hunter.

Jennifer Palmieri, a former aide to Edwards who is now the White House deputy director of communications under Barack Obama, said Elizabeth Edwards was angry at Fred Baron and his wife Lisa for taking Hunter on a shopping spree.

  • Smilin' John

"Rielle Hunter was a loose cannon and Fred and Lisa thought it was important to keep the relationship going," Palmieri said, in describing the 2007 meeting at a hotel in Davenport, Iowa, at which she was present.

"Elizabeth just wanted Rielle out of their lives entirely," she said.

John Edwards, 58, is accused of violating federal election laws by soliciting more than $900,000 in illegal campaign contributions, mainly from Baron and heiress Rachel "Bunny" Mellon, as he pursued the presidency in 2008.

The federal government contends that he sought money to conceal the affair, knowing revelations that he was cheating on his cancer-stricken wife and had fathered Hunter's child would destroy his campaign.

President Barack Obama today became the first sitting president to announce support for same-sex marriage, making his position on the subject clear.

In a sit-down interview with ABC's Robin Roberts, Obama completed what has been a long and often dubious "evolution" on the controversial topic.

"I've always been adamant that gay and lesbian Americans should be treated fairly," Obama told Roberts in an interview that will air Thursday.

Obama's announcement, on the heels of North Carolina's Amendment 1 ban on gay marriage in that state, was made after much soul-searching.

"Over the course of several years, I have talked to friends and family and neighbors, and I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together," he said.

"When I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don't Ask Don't Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married."

Hillary Clinton made major headlines on her trip through Asia ... not just for averting a massive diplomatic crisis, but for wearing no makeup!

The Secretary of State finessed a delicate situation between the U.S. and China over a blind dissident, pressed India to reduce its oil imports from the rogue Iran, and deflected the persistent rumors that she will run for president in 2016.

And finally … the 64-year-old (gasp) wore very little make-up, sported glasses and had un-coiffed hair during an official event in Bangladesh:

Hillary Clinton, No Makeup

"Hillary Au Naturale" has been scrutinized after photos of her wearing glasses, loose hair and nothing but a little bit of lipstick hit the Internet.

Her response? To paraphrase Rihanna: F--ks? Not given.

Clinton told CNN: "I feel so relieved to be at the stage I'm at in my life right now, because if I want to wear my glasses, I'm wearing my glasses."

"If I want to pull my hair back, I'm pulling my hair back."

In the 2008 primary race, there was much chatter about her short hair and pantsuits, even her use of scrunchies, an outdated hair tie that Carrie Bradshaw Sex and the City famously mocked ... back when that show was still on.

Hil likes 'em because they keep her hair back neatly and out of her face, though, and she's too busy running the entire world to care. So step off.

Going makeup free is a thing now anyways. We've seen AnnaLynne McCord, Demi Lovato and Lady Gaga without makeup. Clinton's just trendy.

As Barack Obama continues to make his way around the country, trumpeting The Buffet Rule - which would apply a minimum tax rate of 30 percent on individuals making over one million dollars/year - he can now take comfort in having a famous person on his side.

Someone who was reportedly paid $20 million for his latest movie role.

Will Smith in Beverly Hills

"I'm very supportive of that idea," Will Smith recently told The Associated Press. "America has been fantastic to me. I have no problem paying whatever I need to pay to keep my country growing."

Smith, of course, is about to star in Men in Black III, which opens on May 25. Will you go see it?

And, on a less important note, do you support The Buffet Rule?

An overwhelming North Carolina vote to define marriage as legal only between a man and woman dealt a strong blow to gay marriage supporters this week.

With 58 percent support, the measure made North Carolina the 29th state to ban gay marriage, which is legal in only six states (Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, New Hampshire, Maryland and New York) and the District of Columbia.

Washington and Maryland passed legislation to permit it, but those laws have yet to take effect. In any case, North Carolina deals marriage equality a setback.

NC Amendment One

The state's Amendment One also proved that despite slow, but steady increases in support nationally, same-sex unions remain unappealing in many areas.

The vote came as President Obama has been facing criticism from his Democratic base for not coming out in favor of gay marriage, even as several of his Cabinet officials - including Vice President Joe Biden - have expressed support.

The most recent Gallup poll shows a plurality of voters support gay marriage, with the number backing it growing over the last several years.

But the results in North Carolina, a major presidential battleground state narrowly won by Obama in 2008, could temper that momentum.

John Edwards has never spoken publicly about his feelings for Rielle Hunter, but thanks to his federal corruption trial, plenty of other people are.

His former speechwriter, Wendy Button, testified Tuesday. She said Edwards admitted he loved Hunter, though the relationship was "complicated."

Edwards spoke about Hunter when answering mock questions as he practiced what he would say when admitting he fathered Rielle's love child.

"Do you love Rielle?" Button testified she asked Edwards.

  • John Edwards is Pumped!
  • John Edwards Proposes!

With Button playing the role of a reporter, the two-time presidential hopeful said, "Yes, it's complicated." This was July 2009, according to Button.

"Do you still see her?" Button also asked. "'Yes, she's the mother of my child,'" Button says John replied. "Is the affair still going on?" she asked.

"You're not entitled to all the details," Edwards answered.

Those questions are ones Edwards, 58, could be asked again if he takes the stand at his trial. The former U.S. Senator is charged with covering up the affair and love child with the help of illegal campaign contributions from wealthy donors.

Cher has never been one to mince words.

Still, it was a little surprising to see just her pummel presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney out of the blue via Twitter Tuesday, only to delete a couple of the more inflammatory Tweets hours later.

What did the iconic pop star and Oscar winner say?

Cher and Mitt

"If ROMNEY gets elected I don't know if I can breathe same air as Him & his Right Wing Racist Homophobic Women Hating Tea Bagger Masters," she Tweeted.

That remark by the 65-year-old attracted a variety of responses, many shocked, and some more profane and negative than others. Cher replied to one hater:

"Nice Mouth ! U learn that at Church, Gun Show,or how to press your Klan costume Klass?" (That, and the nasty tweet directed at her, are still up.)

To another user who called her an "atten.whore," Cher fired back, "Actually I'm Not & if u Dislike Me SO.. Get Off My Site it Cant B Fun 4 U !"

Another Cher tweet that disappeared, however, was this:
