25. If it picks you up any, I couldn't agree more. How is it possible to
kick the shit out of an incumbent in three debates and still lose? By being the worst candidate I've seen since I started following politics, that's how.

I didn't believe Kerry any more than I believed Bush. I voted for Kerry anyway, but I felt like a whore and hated that I voted for a stale piece of shit just because it didn't reek as much as the festering one I was trying to replace. That bullshit "hunting" photo-op of Kerry almost made me vote for Nader - if you insult the intelligence of voters, you pay for it. And as against the war as I am, even I laughed when I heard the phrase "more sensitive war on terror." Kerry got pounded for that one and rightly, so; when you say something like that you've got to think of how the AVERAGE voter will take it, not assume that they'll know what you mean. If he had explained himself well instead of spitting out a future punchline, he might have won. Instead, he rode the laurels of debate victories, not realizing that he didn't do anything special - anybody could beat Bush in a debate. "A-hyuk, it's hard work!"

Sorry, I know I'm rambling off topic, but your post really set me off because it's so in line with what I believe. We won't win until we put up someone to vote FOR; all I did last November was vote AGAINST Bush. Outside of Zell Miller, I'd have preferred almost any Democrat over Kerry.
