Who Supports the Troops?

From the Miami Herald:
World Wrestling Entertainment chairman Vince McMahon and 19 superstars and Divas just returned from bringing holiday cheer to U.S. troops stationed in Iraq on its fifth Tribute to the Troops tour.
Hosted by Armed Forces Entertainment, the tour, Dec. 4-8, marked the fifth holiday Tribute to the Troops event WWE has produced since 2003. The tour and live event will be chronicled in a two-hour holiday special -- WWE Tribute to the Troops -- at 9 p.m. EST/PST Monday, Dec. 24 on the USA Network.
The WWE Tribute to the Troops tour marks the largest celebrity production to visit troops in Iraq, with WWE superstars visiting 20 bases throughout the country in three days.

-- While in Iraq for the Tribute to the Troops taping, several WWE superstars found themselves in grave danger. A helicopter carrying Dean Malenko, Mickie James, Carlito, Chris Jericho, JBL, and Ron Simmons was damaged while landing, stranding the superstars for five hours in a war zone in Tarmiyah, Iraq. They were in the middle of fires, smoke bombs, dead animals, and razor wire everywhere while hanging out with soldiers in an unsecure location. -Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter
I do believe, for whatever it's worth, that a number of prominent wrestlers in the WWE lean to the right.
