Mich. woman crosses the line with politics

A woman in Michigan took the presidential campaign a bit too far on Halloween -- she refused to give treats to children whose parents backed Barack Obama.

According to the Associated Press, Shirley Nagel of Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich., passed out candy, but only to those who shared her support for Republican presidential candidate John McCain and running mate Sarah Palin.

Television station WJBK says a sign posted outside Nagel's house, about 10 miles northeast of downtown Detroit, served this notice to trick-or-treaters: "No handouts for Obama supporters, liars, tricksters or kids of supporters."

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

I'm not an Obama fan, but denying children candy on Halloween because of their parents' political views is a bit extreme. What a witch she is.
