In some countries, making fun of the President results in collective punishment

I would not want to live in such a country. Oh, wait.

At a Kentucky Hospital Halloween party some guy dressed like Obama in a straitjacket.

Someone took offense.

As a result, 750 people will get punished with mandatory diversity training, because diversity training has what to do with dressing like Obama for Halloween?

No, you cannot keep your Obama Halloween costume even if you like it.

Obama costume scares up controversy:

Hopkinsville, KY – – One Halloween costume is scaring up plenty of controversy along the Tennessee-Kentucky border.
A person dressed as President Obama wearing a straitjacket is generating lots of complaints….

1st Street Baptist Church Pastor C.E. Timberlake says it’s wrong to portray any president that way.

“I think it’s very offensive and really that shouldn’t have happened,” Timberlake said. “There are other characters they could have dressed up and put a straitjacket other than the President of this country,”

Administrators of the hospital agree releasing a statement saying “no matter who the president is they deserve respect and honor.”

Joe turner is the Vice Chair of the Christian County Republican Party and he points out President Obama isn’t the first to be made fun of on Halloween and believes this costume makes an amusing statement inside a hospital.

“We see even still today Richard Nixon masks and George W Bush masks,” Turner said.

Someone must be punished. Or better yet, everyone must be punished:

As a result, all 750 employees have now been required to take diversity training. The VP of Human Resources at the medical center issued a statement to staff apologizing for anyone who was offended and personally took responsibility since the incident occurred on his watch.

Somewhere a Rodeo Clown is crying because the country has lost its sense of humor.
