Obama Outraises McCain by 6:1 Ratio Among Active Duty Military

(via the ever-succinct and well-informed Atrios)

As one Digg commenter put it, "Why do the troops hate our troops?"

Or, as one Army Specialist put it, "“We’ll complete our duty — I’m deploying next year — because it’s a commitment I made to the nation, not to a president. But we all know that Iraq was a big mistake.”

Whatever the reason, Obama is outraising McCain among American forces currently deployed overseas by a 6:1 margin.

  1. 6-1 is a massive advantage, no matter the group.

    You'd think that this would change that whole the Military hearts McCain narrative, but then again facts never seemed to play important roles in those narratives to begin with.
