Probably the silliest thing an unwed mom could do is express strong opinions about the sanctity of marriage and sit in judgement of those who do not share this world view.
Even sillier? Insisting, when you’re a single teen mom, that children raised in traditional “mom and dad” families are better off than those raised by gay parents.
Bristol Palin did both of these things in her blog post earlier today, while slamming President Obama for supporting gay marriage – and the Twitterverse went bananas.

If you follow @BarackObama, you’ll get to hear from the President himself from time to time on the campaign trail and from Washington.
What grade do you think Barack Obama would get for his Twitter spelling? How about Sarah Palin? You’d probably guess pretty close to those two, but how about the other seven celebrities on this Twitter spelling report card? While we know that 140-characters can sometimes restrict the spelling of your to “ur”, celebs had better watch their tweeted lingo or else be prepared for a big fat “Fail” on this report card. We’ve got the results below.
