Bristol Palin

Me & Tripp Need Protection

from Ring-Popping Crazy

Bristol Palin is begging for protection against an obsessed stalker ... claiming the dude sent her a creepy wedding proposal -- complete with a ring -- and even showed up at her mom's house on her son Tripp's birthday ... TMZ has learned.

According to court docs ... the "Dancing with the Stars" all-star obtained a temporary restraining against Michael Cummings -- a 39-year-old Texan she claims she's never met ... and only came into contact with after he sent her an engagement ring, along with a note saying, "I (heart) you."

Bristol alleges Cummings was later spotted at her mom Sarah Palin's house on December 27 -- Tripp's fourth birthday -- at which point she immediately filed for protection.

She's hoping to make the order more permanent at a hearing later this month.

Considering Cumming's own mom called local police to tell them her "unstable" son was in town to see Bristol ... protection's probably the right way to go.

I thought that was Tripp's dad or was that Mom's campaign advisor

Wonder if stuff like this gives baby daddy leverage on custody matters?

Seems like Bristol wants to share everything about her with her daily calls to the tabloids. Can't have it both ways. If she wants privacy and not to be bothered by stalkers, it is about time for a light bulb to come on and the Palins should ask themselves if there is anything they are doing to encourage these nutjobs. Might say likes attract each other but a first step would be to live a more private life without broadcasting every thing you do and every where you go. If Bristol is that scared for Tripp, maybe he should live with his Dad for awhile until things settle down. Another idea might be that if she stopped giving the stalker so much media attention and let the local police quietly do their jobs, it might be that he would be apprehended more quickly. Seems strange that the Palins and all their staff haven't figured out anything to de-escalate the situation. Also reports say that Bristol wasn't even around for Tripp's birthday--she was off with Joey Junker promoting his chances in the FOX contest.

If she wants protection, she should hire guards and not leech off the taxpayers. Her family is rich, they can afford private security who can protect Bristol and , when necessary, detain ***mings and have him formally arrested.
