    Weird story. Like little kids even care about the election.

    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."

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

    Those little kids should have stolen a McCain sign and pretended to be a supporter. :)

    What's the over/under on the number of eggs she had to clean off her house the next day. I'd say about 4 dozen.

    "thanks for wasting our time lady, the rule is if you don't want to give out candy you turn off the light."

    Did anybody get a good look at the video? All the M&Ms are attached to McCain/Palin door hangers/flyers. LOL. Those kids are going to take the candy and throw away the flyer.
