It came as a surprise to some political observers when we learned earlier in the fall that military donations are going heavily towards Barack Obama and Ron Paul, both of whom are staunch opponents of the president’s policy in Iraq. The conventional wisdom suggested the troops are conservative and would support pro-war candidates, but the contributions show otherwise.

How about the clergy? "Everyone" knows ministers and pastors are conservative and prefer "pro-family" Republicans, right?
