(Newser) – Bristol Palin is weighing in on Rush Limbaugh's "slut" mess on her blog, but it's not the shock jock who's the subject of her ire. Instead, she took President Obama to task for calling Sandra Fluke to express his disappointment in Limbaugh's comments ... while Palin's phone has yet to ring. Why should the president be phoning? Because, as he told reporters about Fluke, "you didn’t want [Malia and Sasha] to think it was OK for men to treat them that way," and it shouldn't be OK for Bill Maher to treat Palin the way he has.

"Your $1,000,000 donor Bill Maher has said reprehensible things about my family. He's made fun of my brother because of his Down's Syndrome," she writes, going on to share a particularly nasty joke Maher made about her. "I've always felt you understood my plight more than most because your mom was a teenager," she says of Obama, and notes that he stood up for her during the 2008 campaign. But now, "it seems you’re only willing to defend certain women." She doesn't want Obama to return Maher's money, because "you’re going to need every dime to hang on to your presidency." But she just thinks he should be a little more fair. "After all, you’re president of all Americans, not just the liberals." Click for Palin's whole post.
