Michigan woman limits her treats to McCain supporters only

GROSSE POINTE FARMS, Mich. - A suburban Detroit woman decided to scare up the vote among neighbourhood children by just offering treats to John McCain supporters.

Shirley Nagel of Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, handed out candy Friday only to those who shared her support for the Republican presidential candidate and his running mate, Sarah Palin.

Others were turned away empty-handed.

TV station WJBK says a sign outside Nagel's house warned: No handouts for Obama supporters, liars, tricksters or kids of supporters.

Nagel calls Democrat Barack Obama scary. When asked about children who were turned away empty-handed and crying, she said simply: Everybody has a choice.

Fax and phone messages left at numbers for Nagel were not returned.

See, saying you disagree with someone's politics is one thing, but calling a presidential candidate "scary" is something else. Mind you, I find Sarah Palin scary but for entirely different reasons!

I hope I'm not starting a debate.

I'm just curious, why is it different? I imagine you probably don't like Sarah Palin's viewpoints on some things, or the idea of her becoming president if John McCain died because she's not very qualified. Maybe this woman doesn't feel secure with the idea of Obama becoming president, and therefore finds that "scary." I don't see anything odd about that.

I can't tell you the number of people who've told me that Bush scares them...

Haha, kids crying. I wonder which one of her angry neighbors phoned this story into the press?

Weird.
