OK, time for logic.
Islamic terrorism? Unlikely, or else some jihadist would've claimed responsibility by now. Furthermore, the area struck had no military/strategic significance (Boston marathon finish line? ?)
Paleo-right wing terrorism? Possibly. The bombing was in Boston, a liberal town, so it would make it a potential target.
Neo-conservative terrorism? Unlikely. The GOP establishment (or their sponsors) is certainly able and willing to launch domestic terrorist attacks (and has the big $$ to do so) to try to scare the public into voting for more neocon pols. But Boston--a mecca of liberalism--doesn't seem like an ideal target. Disneyland/Disneyworld would've been better.
CONCLUSION: Most likely paleo-conservative terrorist attack. Probably some right-wingers who decided to blame "librelism" for all their woes and attacked what they thought was the center of it

WHY don't the hacks stop speculating as to who did this crime until the facts become known. I remember when the Murrow Building was bombed and the rumors were Islamists. Lets not jump to silly conclusions or use this to bash a group since there apparently is no hints yet as to who could have done this?
the Marathon isn't exactly something that attracts only liberals or conservatives, democrats or Republicans.
