Dollars for (un)Deployment

The Center for Responsive Politics issued a report today chronicling the giving patterns of active duty military personnel to the 2008 Presidential candidates.

McCain, Hunter and Giuliani cleaning up?

Hardly. Tough guys know better than to fall for empty tough talk. The leading recipients of military money are Barack Obama and Ron Paul, both original critics of the Iraq war. Obama has brought in roughly $27k, head and shoulders above Paul's $19k and McCain's $18k, and light years ahead of most other candidates.

Moral of the story? Get US out or Iraq. Death sucks.
