Bake Sales For Bombers

I recall seeing once a left-wing bumper sticker that said something to the effect of, "It'll be a great day when schools are fully funded and the military has to have a bake sale to buy a bomber." So it came as an interesting surprise to me to read this article (link via Q and O), wherein Al Gore is quoted as being outraged that military families had to hold bake sales to buy body armor for their soldiers in the Sandbox. Evidently the bake sale thing was just an unfounded rumor, but I still think it's ironic that if it had been true, there was a peacenik Democrat complaining to a bunch more peacenik Democrats that the anti-military slogan on a left-wing bumper sticker had actually become fact.
