The Monty Hall problem

Am I an idiot because I just don't get this? This page, The Monty Hall page, is a cyber-equivalent of Let's Make a Deal. (I hold Monty Hall personally responsible for the amount of junk I carry in my purse.)

It just seems counterintuitive to me that the odds should not change when the problem changes.

If anyone can explain it to me, I'd appreciate it. Logically I can understand it, but I just can't "get" it.
