The caller laughed at me for having been swatted and laughed at Michelle Malkin because her cousin is missing. http://t.co/tSx26v2E

More on Patterico’s blog:

I was on a podcast with Lee Stranahan last night about Kimberlin and the swattings. You can hear it here.

A person claiming to be my swatter called in twice to the show: once at 50:18 and again at about 65 minutes in. I was on the show and the person claiming to be the swatter addressed me directly, twice. He called me “buddy,” mocked me for having been swatted, laughed at me repeatedly, and mocked Michelle Malkin for the situation where her cousin is missing. He asked me what it was like to be swatted, and absurdly claimed that he was present that night, watching me led out in handcuffs.

It was like some awful B movie you see on the USA Network late at night.

Was it really the SWATter? Or was it just a hoaxer with a twisted sense of humor? Twitter users are divided:

@michellemalkin @stranahan @patterico Slime or copyslime?

@Patterico @michellemalkin I don't think it was your caller. Just some lib schmuck smart enough to follow story, but still stupidly liberal

Either way, the caller is a sicko.
