What kind of message does that send? To these kids & to the country?
Coverage of this story on Fox (of all places):
GROSSE POINTE FARMS, Mich. — 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."
I wonder if that woman really thought she was going to "win over" some votes for McCain via these tactics... I mean, did she really think this was a good idea?
