The article contains reasons President Barack Obama should not be re-elected, such as "He's black," "He's half-white," "He is a Nazi," and "His dog is ugly."

Charles Leon Parker was arrested Saturday morning in Madison County, Fla., after eluding authorities for 29 years.
Parker was originally arrested Nov. 24, 1982, in an incest case in Douglas County. He failed to appear in court to face the charges of incest and child molestation.
Phil Miller said Parker was the county's most wanted fugitive.
"We're proud to get him," Miller said. "To me, molesting a child is the worst crime a person can commit. It just shows that sooner or later we're going to get you."
