Flame War, Redefined

Via Fausta's Blog, more peaceful non-hatred aimed at Republicans:

PORTLAND, Ore. - Authorities have arrested two men after a Molotov cocktail was thrown at a 4-foot by 8-foot campaign sign for Republican presidential candidate John McCain in a southeast Portland yard.

Karen Scrutton said she was asleep inside her home at 7956 S.E. 17th Ave. in the Sellwood neighborhood when she saw her sign go up in flames after 1 a.m.

…Witnesses said the suspects threw a Molotov cocktail at the sign and used another as a torch.

The Scruttons worried that their home could have caught on fire.

"Our whole house could have burnt down," Karen Scrutton said while thanking her neighbor for intervening.
Gee, I hope they didn't have any kids at home.

Alternate tagline: aren't Molotov cocktails bad for the environment?

I wonder if the perps are sons of Democrat congresspeople. That would fit the ususal profile, wouldn't it?
