Bristol Palin believes President Barack Obama should call her to apologize for the comments made about her by Bill Maher just as he called Sandra Fluke about the comments made about the law student by Rush Limbaugh, according to ABC News.

I’ve signed up and posted! Again, thanks for the link.

ANyone who expects leftists to be consistent or to not to be hypocrites are fooling themselves.
They will just wait it out, in the "cone of silence" until a new media cycle kicks in.
Even if he invites her to a "beer summit", I'd keep my distance.
Obama is too busy selling his favorite nail polish and bash babies with down syndrome on the head to deign pay attention to her.
Weren't some of the liberal ethics charges against Sarah Palin that she used state funds when bringing her family on business trips?
Meanwhile, 13-year-old Malia Obama commands a trip to Mexico for spring break, and the media covers it up.
Wow. The girl looks amazing...that hair! Great job, Bristol.
