via Power Line:

A number ofreaders have written, asking whether an email purporting to have beensent by me, which was posted on a site called Minnesota Politics, isgenuine. It is. Here is the story:

We have receivedrelatively little hate mail in the two-and-a half years that we havebeen writing for this site. One reason is that we rarely choose toengage left-wing sites like Daily Kos and Atrios in their brand ofargument. Around a week ago, however, both of those sites sicced theirreaders on us, with the result that hate mail started pouring in. WhenI wrote about the Guckert/Gannon controversy, the hate mailintensified; we were inundated with email messages from their readers,many of them inexpressibly vulgar and vile.

At least get the name of the blog right, it's Eschaton.

These are not nice people. ....Suffice it to say that these people are beneath contempt.

Get mad at one person for something somebody else did. Remind anyone of anything?

I would have done the same with the "Minnesota Politics" guy if he had contacted me rather than posting my email--which obviously wasn't intended for publication--on his site.

You see Minnesota guy; this never would have happened if you would have just shut your yap!

Can you help us out?
