Troops Deployed Abroad Give 6:1 to Obama over McCain

Wow. Kind of sounds like the troops overwhelmingly don’t like John McCain, at all. Or to the degree they like him, they still don’t want to see him as their leader.

According to an analysis of campaign contributions by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, Democrat Barack Obama has received nearly six times as much money from troops deployed overseas at the time of their contributions than has Republican John McCain, and the fiercely anti-war Ron Paul, though he suspended his campaign for the Republican nomination months ago, has received more than four times McCain’s haul.

I guess that means McCain will now be accusing the troops of hating the troops. Where’s Joe Lieberman?
