Molotov cocktails. :pause: I don’t really need to go on, do I?

And may I add in passing that there is no way that this was not premeditated?

Leslie Brockette Leudtke and Kevin Carl Robinson – the two suspects – didn’t just happen to have incendiary devices in their car trunk. They had a plan. Via Protein Wisdom Pub:

Pair arrested after large McCain sign torched in Sellwood yard

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.

“I screamed upstairs to my husband, ‘Jean! Jean!” she said.

A neighbor heard a crash and chased off one of the suspects. Jean Scrutton said his son-in-law found another suspect not far away.

And yes, “Molotov cocktails.” That’s what it says on the news release.

Moe LanePS: If I have to explain, you’re damned to Hell anyway.
