Michelle Malkin has received a horrible, vile letter from Dan Opacki (Dan’s Letter), whom she has discovered to be one of the thousands of signers of the Anti War Manifesto published at The Campaign for Peace and Democracy. Later she received another e-mail from a Dan Opacki who admits signing the petition, but denies writing the vile e-mail via Yahoo, claiming “Any idiot can open a yahoo account free of charge and apprently someone did, using my name – why? I have no clue, but it was NOT the real Dan Opacki.”
“Speaking of slow-wittedness, the Cindy Sheehan juggernaut has resulted in an uptick in profanity-laced moonbat hate mail from Bush Derangement Syndrome sufferers incapable of rational debate. Here’s just a sample. Excuse the language. An e-mailer named Dan Opacki, whose name appears on this anti-war manifesto, writes:”
“[Update: A different Dan Opacki with a comcast account sent the following e-mail this afternoon to clarify…]
“Hello Michelle, A friend of mine called me and told me that she was e-mailed by someone else telling of my name on your web-site. I’m not sure what’s going on but I can assure you that I did not write such crass words as what appears attributed to my name. I’m a real person with a real profession and a reputation and while yes, I singed a petition, I did not call you those nasty names.”
