"Support the troops"?!?

Let's see:who "supports the troops" more? The guy who voted against veterans' benefits as much as any Republican chickenhawk in Congress, or the guy to whose campaign the troops themselves are donating by a factor of six-to-one?

Troops Deployed Abroad Donate Six Times More To Obama

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.
Guess that answers that. The claim that McCain, or the Republican Congress as a whole, "support the troops" better or completely than do the Dirty Fucking Hippies who opposed sending those same troops on an ill-conceived, incompetently planned, criminally-motivated elective imperial war?

It's a lie. John McCain, Mitch McConnell, Newt Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh?

They lie.
