This is a damnable lie

According to the Military Times,

McCain, R-Ariz., handily defeated Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., 68 percent to 23 percent in a voluntary survey of 4,293 active-duty, National Guard and reserve subscribers and former subscribers to Army Times, Navy Times, Marine Corps Times and Air Force Times.

The results of the Military Times 2008 Election Poll are not representative of the opinions of the military as a whole. The group surveyed is older, more senior in rank and less ethnically diverse than the overall armed services.

But as a snapshot of careerists, the results suggest Democrats have gained little ground in their attempts to significantly chip away at a traditionally Republican voting bloc in campaign messages and legislative initiatives, such as the recent expansion of GI Bill benefits, experts said.

We know this is a damnable lie because the media went out of its way to tell us Barack Obama and Ron Paul have gotten more campaign contributions from soldiers than John McCain.

See here, here, and here for example.

Surely the media would not hype Obama’s support among our servicemen based on campaign contribution reports and then discover the reality was the opposite. Surely they would not have lied to us and distorted coverage of the military to suggest American servicemen and women want to go with the candidate of surrender when in fact they did not.

Okay, yeah, you’re right. Yes, the media did in fact lie. The media did in fact hype donations to Obama from the military as proof of military support for Obama. We all knew they were full of crap.

Now we have polling data to prove we were right and the media was wrong. Note that the men and women of the United States military support the fighter, not the effete wimp.

Now from the media? Crickets.
