You did know Democrats got more money from the defense industry, didn't you? 

The folks at the Center for Responsive Politics remind us today that Democrats have pocketed more money from the defense industry -- both individuals and PACs -- than Republicans have. This isn't the sort of thing you would know from reading most of the mainstream press.

In the 2010 cycle, the Democrats picked up 55 percent of defense PAC giving, up from 2008, when Dems got 53 percent.

And I'll give you one guess as to who the only candidate is to ever receive $1 million in contributions from the defense industry. A hint: his last name has the sound "Bomb" in it.
