Orange County Register: Here are some select reader comments to a story on people camping out for tickets to President Obama's Wednesday town hall at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa: "He is owned by the same people that owned Bush, he is called a PUPPET." "What do you expect from a Bill Ayers loyalist?" "Obama is no different than Blagojevich, he's just a little smarter." "Like I tell my friend who is Chinese and who suffered under Maoism, if you liked China in the '60s, you'll love Obama in the next eight years." [After a long description of what seems to be Obama's biography;] "Who am I? ADOLF HITLER. WHO WERE YOU THINKING OF?" "Young, stupid and unemployed zealots. They are sheep." And these were just the comments on the first page!
