Wicked Witch of Wayne County?

Monday, November 03, 2008

Have you guys caught wind of Shirley Nagel, dubbed by one blogger as the "Wicked Witch of Wayne County"? I'll bet you have, but since I just heard about it, I'll assume there must be other who have not heard.

One Shirley Nagel, of Grosse Point Farms, refused to give candy to children on Halloween if their parents were supporters of Obama! What kind of a crock of shit is that?! She apparently even had a sign out front that read "No handouts for Obama supporters, liars, tricksters or kids of supporters." OMFG?!?! It's one thing for a couple of adults to hash out their political views in some less than savory ways... BUT LEAVE THE KIDS OUT OF IT!



One commenter on Buzzfeed said "And that's how many children learned to hate republicans. Not the brightest campaign idea."

Yeah, well when Obama takes control, you damned well better believe that he'll redistribute the glorious childrens' candy in a politically transformative manner. The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of candy struggles!

An October Revolution, indeed.

What a kook! When I was in 7th grade, we went door to door collecting money for UNICEF. I have no problem with people not wanting to give money to some UN group for whatever reason, but one guy just went off on us about how evil was the UN. I was only 11 or 12, so I had no idea there was any kind of controversy, nor do I think that children should be the target of political activism (this also holds true for parents that use their kids to make a political statements). Needless to say, we returned to this guy's house and rained about 4 dozen eggs on it.

There was a study done a few years ago that showed a certain percentage of people wouldn't give assistance to s stranded montorist if that person had a bumper sticker for a candidate that they disliked. Has the level of partisanship reached the point where we throw common decency and manners out the window?

And I wonder if anybody will do the honors on this lady's house?

I've got to wonder, too... If you're this lady's sister/brother, child/mother... What in the hell would you be feeling right about now?

Obama believes in, quote, "Spreading the nougat". Is that what we want to teach our children? That their hard-earned confections should be shared with other people?

The GOP is not off to a good start in winning people back.

It could have been worse--she could have provided poisoned candy for the children of Obama supporters.

Any bets on Keith Olbermann's "Worst Person" or some sort of mention on The Daily Show or the Colbert Report?

Steves is right...keep kids out of political activism.

Smitty: if this doesn't get ripped apart by Stewart, and completely idolized by Colbert, then I will be sorely dissapointed.

Sopor 3:07 PM  

OH!! Turns out she was a Delegate from Michigan at the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis/St. Paul this year!! Check it out.

Give it up for Google with the search results!

You've got to be fucking kidding me. I read the article. My favorite gem:

"You judge a book by its cover, and we've been waiting for that chance with her," said Nagel, dressed in a hockey jersey like the rest of the Michigan delegation. "We want to see how tall she is, if she wears heels, how she wears her hair. That's stuff us Republican women need to know." [emphasis added]

After choking back the laughter, I continued on.

In the same breath, a Republican State Senator said [Palin] is elevating women just by her presence. I will always remember this."

Uh-huh. Elevating women. So long as they wear heels.

FWIW, this story has come up on several conservative forums I frequent and I haven't read a single post that is remotely supportive of this woman. Most seem to think she deserves and egging or tp in her trees.

steves 6:56 PM  

I just read the article and that woman is batshit crazy. She is even more nuts than the typical conventioneer.

Sopor 12:55 PM  

"I haven't read a single post that is remotely supportive of this woman."

I'm very comforted to hear this, serioulsy! I would've only been furhter sickened if anybody stood up for this craziness!
