Big Bird is so two weeks ago.
Tuesday evening's second Presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney saw both contenders hit the floor in a town-hall style meeting at Hofstra University in Long Island, New York -- and the proceedings between Obama, 51, and Romney, 65, were noticeably more spirited and at time combative as CNN's Candy Crowley moderated.
Hollywood celebrities weighed in -- via Twitter, of course -- on the fiery discussion, which touched upon women in the workforce, single parents, immigration, gun control, the recent tragedy in Libya and more.

Sarah PalinWe had a really good presidential debate tonight, and I hope every American is energized to get out and vote in three weeks. I also just want to give a quick thank you to everyone who supported Bristol & Mark. I know how much they appreciated the support. Now Bristol can head home just in time to enjoy Alaska's new fallen snow!
