CDOT employee in trouble over Obama - Palin e-mail photo

A 73-year-old Colorado Department of Transportation supervisor forwarded an e-mail with a photo attached depicting Barack Obama shining the shoes of former vice-presidential Candidate Sarah Palin as shown below.

The photo caption says, "It appears he has found his niche."

While some think it is inappropriate, others see it as simply humor.

No politician should be immune from spoofs or satire.

This picture was nothing compared to how President George W. Bush was treated by the media. Many of the ‘editorial cartoons’ in newspapers treated Bush unmercifully.

The CDOT employee is under investigation because the e-mail sent from her work computer. She should be punished only if CDOT decrees it should not have been sent on company time on a company computer.
