184. This is probably a "DUH" for everybody else, but...
...the moral values part of the exit polls has been disturbing me ever since it came out. My immediate reaction was that it was bullshit, and especially ironic given that we were supposed to believe the polls about this, but not about Kerry winning. (Right. I know this was everyone's reaction.)

But what was disturbing me was that if I threw out the moral values part of the poll because it was clearly bullshit...then how could I still stand by the Kerry winning part of the poll? I would be just as much of a hypocrite as the other side.

And I JUST NOW GOT IT. Voters DID vote on moral values....THAT IS WHY THEY ELECTED KERRY.

Okay, everyone scream DUH at me. Get it out of your systems. :)
