"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:"If anyone is interested in DAN OPACKI, who signs himself as "Dan Opacki, University of Massachusetts Amherst", these are the people that he apparently hangs out with: Anti War Manifesto Signers
"[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."
