    Your situation is not the same as Ms Flukes. You were a pregnant teenager who was not married. You made that decision. Ms Fluke was talking about a national need for health care for women and got called a slut for it. She did nothing to provoke that. Ms Fluke was representing the healthcare reform that the President issued.

    I could say the same about Limbaugh... and I would get the same response because nobody would a flip about who I am or what I want. does she think she has political clout because she's on reality TV?

    Isn't there a law against stalking the President of the United States of America ? Like her Mom she has a crush on Obama but they are so delusional they actually think the President would call one of them.

    She needs to get a real job and take care of her son. She knows nothing in the great scheme of things.

    Ms Fluke was asked by Democrats to speak about contraception being paid for womens health care and got called a slut for it. Also you should be aware that Limbaugh donates much of his money to the GOP and no one gave him his money back. And you want a phone call for what?

    A desperate effort on the part of an irrelevant person to seek attention. Maher is no Limbaugh and YOU are no fluke. There is a heaven-and-hell of difference between these two sets of people.

    Bristol Palin wants a call from Obama because she stated "I'm actually a slut – child out of wedlock – hello... Please call!"

  13. vote the Tea Party OUT in 2012

    ok so her Mom didn't denounce what Rush Limbaugh said but she wants President Obama to denounce whatever it is Bill Maher, who supported Limbaugh's right to say what he said by the way, to denounce him. Looks like the Palin apple didn't fall too far from the tree. As a woman she along with her mother I guess didn't mind Rush calling Ms. Fluke a slut on the air. Too bad.

    No one deserves to be called names, but the President doesn't need to call her. She, however, does need to call her psychiatrist pronto.

  16. once upon a horse

    Sarah Palin announced she wants to debate President Obama and now Bristol wants the president to call her. Both know that NIETHER will happen and they will jump up and down and claim VICTORY which their fans of course will agree with. Methinks a certain family needs attention and feels left out.

    Bristol, were you trying to be a part of the GOP anti-contraception hearing and denied access to it like all other women? Otherwise you are missing the topic of discussion, which was contraception and partisan attacks on anyone that supported it. I will say that going overboard by comedians or partisan pundits against women is not funny and is unacceptable. However some situations don't deserve a presidential phone call.

    Go away little girl, the president owes you nothing. How about hitting your mom up for an apology, she's the one that chose to use you as a stage prop.

    The Presidnt shouldn't be calling Bristol because Bill Maher said something nasty. Nor should he be calling Fluke. He should be calling the Americans that lost their jobs, homes and loved ones. That's where his attention should be focused, not on entertaining sideshows.
