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.

Well, when you are a FAME whore - that's what you get. Too bad she didn't worry about her child before jumping on her mothers shirt tail.

I have a few questions about all of this. First of all, how did he know when and where Bristol was having the birthday party for Tripp? Second question, how did she know what he looked like when she supposedly seen him outside of her mom's house? Sounds like another Palin set up to me!

Bristol is so desperate to stay in the news that she would fake her own death just to get back into the tabloids she has on speed dial.

Story sounds so "Fishy". Levi's wife is beautiful, his new baby is beautiful and nobody wants her skanky butt.

"Protection?"As in a bodyguard paid for by the tax payer? Good luck with that Ms. Palin. You might be entitled to a TRO. That's it!

So, who's stopping her from hiring security protection? Since she and her family put themselves out there in the public ad nauseum to make their ill-gotten fortunes for doing nothing, then let her spend some of that fortune to hire a security guard. What taxpayer will want to provide one for her?
