Nothing says Support the Troops more than denying them modern body armor has probably the most hard-hitting, no-nonsense, in your face ad this election campaign. Who is it against? Senator George Allen (R-VA) who is in the fight for his political survival. A while back, he was being touted as a possible 2008 presidential candidate, a while back he was running comfortably ahead of his Democratic challenger. Then came the infamous Macaca incident, followed by the "I love Brown People rally" which consisted of more whites than not. Now Vote has entered the fray with an ad comparing the body armor Donald "We go in with the army we got" Rumfilled sent the troops into Iraq with with modern body armor. I won't spoil the details for you but you have to see the ad to appreciate the magnitude of danger this administration and its enablers send our troops in while pontificating about "supporting" the troops.

Allen voted YES to table an amendment by Senator Landrieu which would have boosted National Guard funding by $1 billion which would have gone to body armor, but his campaign is denying that he actually voted no to not fund body armor. However, isn't tabling an amendment the same as killing it? So yes, he did vote against the troops. He just doesn't want you to know it.
