Oil executive targeted with shoebox bomb? Must be more tea party violence 

We keep hearing so much about the danger of Tea Parties, even as leftist activists cause their typical violent mayhem in Toronto and Oakland.

So here’s another act of violence that must have been carried out by some tea partier who favors cap-and-trade:

Local and federal investigators were at a northwest Houston home Friday night where an explosion sent a woman to the hospital.

The woman was opening a package left at her doorstep in the 2100 block of Seamist Court Friday evening. She had found the shoe-sized box in front of her home about a day ago but didn’t decide to open it until around 6:30pm Friday. The woman, who officials said is in her 60s, took the box to the backyard and opened it on the patio. That’s when it exploded…

It wasn’t immediately clear whether the house was targeted, however, Eyewitness News found out the home is owned by an oil company executive.

The woman survived with facial injuries.

I don’t know about you, but I blame the talk show hosts. Perhaps someone just watched too much Keith Olbermann and lost it.
