Troops prefer Obama 6 to 1

Sheep who can't think for themselves, and want things as simple as possible are the sort of knee-jerk patriots most likely to vote Republican. I also thought they were the sort of people most likely to join the military. Could I have been wrong? "...a new analysis by Open Secrets finds that the U.S. military is increasingly rejecting McCain as its spokesman. Obama has received nearly six times as much money from soldiers deployed overseas. "

6 - 1?!? There are only two possible explanations for this:

(1) The troops aren't especially pro-McCain, meaning the media and the candidate haven't been entirely truthful with us.

(2) These donations were made by soldiers who have some independent wealth aside from the meager pay soldiers receive, suggesting that lefties with money are more likely to join the armed forces, then their wealthy republican counterparts.
