    I think he did just get sent home from that job for the day.

    The union is apologizing.

    I worked for the decorators union here and crap like this happened all the time. Although wearing a Bush shirt on an Obama gig probably was not the best idea. Nor would wearing an Obama shirt at a Bush gig

    So he was just sent home and still got paid for the day. I guess you really can't believe everything you see on the internet. Time to put all that faux outrage on the back burner. You folks sure are good for a few laughs.

    It's still wrong that they sent him home for wearing that shirt. The point is that they sent the guy home for wearing a non-political shirt that mentioned the USS George H.W. Bush.

    Perhaps it was wrong, but people make the wrong choices all the time. It's no big deal and doesn't deserve all the attention it recieved. Where I work if you wear clothing that disrupts work you can be sent home. The guy knew wearing the shirt at an Obama event would cause a commotion. That's why he wore it. It got all the attention he was looking for.

    So you are outraged that he got sent home and paid for doing nothing?

    It was a response based on your own use of the phrase. I'm not outraged but if I could muster up enough rage over it, it wouldn't be faux.

    Would you like a cup of coffee?
