Trick or Treat? No treat for Obama supporters

When I was a kid, I remember my father, a lifelong Democrat and Justice Department appointee under Jimmy Carter saying "I'd would be a Republican, except they're so mean." This is so typical of the mean spirited Republican ethos my father was talking about.

Mich. woman: Supporting Obama? No treats for you

GROSSE POINTE FARMS, Mich. (AP) — A suburban Detroit woman has decided to scare up the vote among neighborhood children by just offering treats to John McCain supporters.

Shirley Nagel of Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich., 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: "Oh well. Everybody has a choice."

Stay classy, Republicans!
