This was amazing. A Michigan woman is reported to have asked people coming to her door on Halloween: "Are you supporting Obama?"
If the kids or their parents indicated that they were Obama supporters, they were turned away. No candy for "liars and tricksters."
Is this a good way to win votes for McCain? Would you actually reconsider your vote if you and your kids showed up on Shirley Nagel's doorstep, your kids started crying and she told you "Oh well. Everybody has a choice."
Indeed they do, Ms. Nagel. And your choice was to be a complete assclown. When the idea first crossed your mind, perhaps you were amused by it. But what part of your brain is missing that should have stopped you from making a complete jerk out of yourself to the neighborhood and the media? What part of your mind saw this as a practical way to campaign? What part of your heart is missing that you make little kids the target of your political statement?
If your house didn't get egged, Ms. Nagel, then you've got kids in your neighborhood with commendable restraint.Posted by James at November 2, 2008 1:31 PM
