Why is it that when someone identifies one way politically we automatically assume they are in sync with every other person who identifies the same way?
For example. I'm Liberal and voted for Obama so some might assume I think he's the messiah or can do no wrong or is going to make everything rainbows and unicorns but that is far from the truth. Obama wasn't my first or even third choice of all the Dem candidates and if McCain were the man I thought he was in 2000 OR if Ron Paul had been the Rep nominee I might have voted differently.
I do believe the MSM helped Obama to win but more because it was history and would sell more papers than another old white dude.
Some on my side of the aisle might assume that McCain supporters are war mongering, fundies who are nore interested in money than people but for most that is probably not true.
Why must so many assume that others automatically have drunk the kool aid?

I see a lot of assumptions coming from both sides of the aisle.
