We’ve got our fair share of assholes in Michigan, some might argue I’m one of them, but at least I’m not guilty of spoiling Halloween for kids to promote my choice of political candidate:
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.”
And here’s the spot from FOX 2 News:
To put it bluntly, Shirley Nagel is a douche bag. To even think of asking kids what political stance their parents have before handing out candy is raising the art of douche baggery to new and unprecedented heights. What the fuck is wrong with her? Does she seriously think that by making their kids cry that suddenly Obama supporters will see the light and switch their votes to McCain? Someone get that woman a copy of How to Win Friends and Influence People stat!
Vote McCain or your kids will NEVER GET ANY HALLOWEEN CANDY AGAIN!
