Bomb attack against Occupy protest

Hey, remember when you laughed at all the times I talked about how violent the lunatic right is?

But folks in Portland, Maine, are realizing it's no joke.

An Occupy Maine encampment was attacked yesterday by a bomb. The device consisted of a chemical mixture in a Gatorade bottle. It exploded under a table, lifting the table about a foot off the ground. Miraculously, no serious injuries were reported.

Witnesses believe the bomb was thrown from a silver car whose occupants kept shouting right-wing slogans.

This attack is an open-and-shut case of terrorism, but it's received almost no media coverage.
