At Least the Racists are Outing Themselves

From today's Chicago Tribune online:

Boo! Who? Supporting Obama? No treats for you

GROSSE POINTE FARMS, Mich. - A Grosse Pointe Farms woman has doled out political tricks by refusing Halloween treats to children whose parents support Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Shirley Nagel passed out candy Friday -- but only to those who shared her support for Republican presidential candidate John McCain and running mate Sarah Palin.

Fox 2 News says a sign posted outside Nagel's house, about 12 miles west of Detroit, served notice to all trick-or-treaters. It read: "No handouts for Obama supporters, liars, tricksters or kids of supporters."

Nagel tells WJBK-TV that "Obama's scary." When asked about children who'd been turned away empty-handed and crying, she said: "Oh well. Everybody has a choice."

Fax and phone messages were left Saturday at numbers listed in Nagel's name.

Thanks to Dr. Monkey, here's the video!


  1. Great! Let's punish the children!!

    It is so McCain-ian anyway.


  2. Is there an accompanying article about a burning bag of poo found on Ms. Nagel's porch? Anything about toilet paper in her trees? Eggs smashed on her windows? There are risks to refusing the treat.

    I'm stealing this for my blog.
