Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Military Donations and Closet Military Leftists

The day after I point out that a large chunk of what passes for liberal thought requires the assumption that military is filled with closet leftists, I find that there's some evidence that purports to to show that. Apparently, military political donations have been going to Democrats and the antiwar Republican Ron Paul. On the other hand, Alenda Lux has compared the actual donations to Ron Paul and John McCain and found that more people (55) donated to McCain than to Ron Paul (23). When I examined the individual-donors list, I found 31 donations (using /^\s*(soldier|military|us\s*(af|mc|army|navy|marine|air\s+f))/i) to Ron Paul and 48 to Barak Obama. I haven't examined the John McCain list yet. On the gripping hand that's a small sample.

There's a comment at Crooks and Liars on this:

So even the troops don’t “support the troops”, …
At least as far as 79 of them are concerned …

Addendum: While googling for "military donations" and corner, I found the following:
