MOTHER JONES has done a great service by breaking down this season's presidential campaign contributions by occupation. Here are some of the findings:

Illustrating the success with which the GOP has conned America's lower income classes, McCain majorities can be found amongst donating laborers, construction workers (84% of $9,000 donated), elementary school teachers, soldiers, barbers, truckers, chauffeurs and police officers.

Strongest Obama backing comes from pre school teachers, organic farmers, biologists, nurse practitioners, oncologists, public defenders, dog trainers, Episcopal priests, OBY-GNs, science teachers, journalists and pastry chefs.

Ron Paul got 100% of donations from servants, sex slaves, wizards, and pizza guys.

While Huffington Post listed the basic data from federal sources, making it interesting and fun to read was the work of Mother Jones. - TPR

Just for the record, my pizza guy is endorsing Cynthia McKinney and the Green Party.
He's amused when he tells folks that he's not supporting Barry Obama or Mrs Slick. Invariably he gets accused of being a racist and a misogynist.
It's fun when he follows up with the green bomb.

My pet dogs both support Ralph Nader. That's canine loyalty for ya.

My proctologist is pushing for John McAIPAC, but he specializes in assholes, so that's comes as no surprise.
