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.

The Palins had better be careful about all the information they are leaking about this story. You can't tell everyone that the knife and the ring and the stalker who got by all the security systems/body guards at your mom's house was 39 year old Michael ***mings of Texas. So the newsmen go on the internet and we see there is one 39 year old Michael ***mings who lives in New Braunfels. What's next--the media knock on this guys home to ask him about her charges--and they either find out that he is mentally ill or his identity has been stolen etc. let the FBI or the police do their jobs and don't try to turn everything into a chance to get your name in the news. Maybe the claim is true--maybe it is not--but a person is deemed to be innocent until proven guilty and you can't plaster his name in the news or ruin his reputation until the police have charged him with the crime. How in the world does someone slip a knife into a letter and it gets through the postal system?

this woman has gone some classy to trashy in 2.5 seconds. she always has been trashy I don't know why they hired her. it's ridiculous when you can even tune into CNN anymore. obviously she's washed up in Hollyweird. if I was Anderson Cooper I would have slapped the hell out of her he needs to do a lawsuit against her for that is ridiculous she made him look like a fool.

Isn't it funny that Bristol is just so sure that she has a future in politics but cannot even speak proper English. And she is still waiting for the President to give her a call--but she thinks nothing about criticizing Sasha and Malia??? And she told everyone to watch her failed reality show because Tripp did and said such cute things--so we did and saw a kid so spoiled and out of control that everyone agreed that Levi would be a better parent. And we heard about how beautiful and fit and trim Bristol would be on the second Dancing Contests and we saw what money for plastic surgery and pills do for someone who is too lazy to work hard like all the other contestants . The Palins keep putting themself out there to see how they live--and we are seeing how dysfunctional and ugly behavior the Palins have.

First we hear all about how tough the Palins are--names like Bristol the Pistol and Mama Grizzly and Queen of Mean and Queen of Abstinence. Now they are playing the victim card and pretending how scared they are because someone send her an engagement ring. Maybe it's time to hire a body guard if Todd and Joey aren't able to protect these fragile women.

Bristol should be wondering why the Kardashians and Honey Boo Boo don't have all the problems with stalkers that this crazy family has. Seems like every day Palins are hysterical about some guy going to rape one of the daughters. Almost seems like they want to have this opportunity to write another book about being a victim and having a pregnancy that wasn't their fault.
