    That's exactly how I feel.  I was the biggest news nerd there was in this election, I read anything I could get my hands on.  I actually started this election out semi-undecided.  Up until the end of 2003 I was actually a republican. (At least thought I was, I'm only 23 and was just following my Dad.  I also had never voted before, so don't hate me too much...I've seen the light!).  Sometime after Christmas I woke up and started looking at things objectively.  So I wanted to see what Kerry was all about.  So I went to his website, and sites like this.   I kept up with the events of each day.  I knew every issue inside and out.

    That's probably one of the reasons why it was so frustrating to watch the crappy cable news yell shows, and hear people talk about how Kerry hadn't defined himself or his message.  I knew what he stood for, but up until recently, I just hadn't realized that the average joe did not care to know as much as I had learned over the past year.

    Kerry's message was really very incoherant at times.  You had to sit there and analyze what he said at times.  I'm not even sure if he really stood for what I thought he did, maybe I was just hearing what I wanted to.  Bush had a solid simple message that any of his people could easily repeat.  Kerry didn't.  I really wish Kerry had been able to hone his message before August.  

    OH then there's August....grrrrrr.  I can't believe they didn't respond to the swift boat ads sooner.......
