Haha... you and I are so similar Bagholder. We easily get swept up in political insanity. Our obsessions with posts are very apparent, as long as we are aware of this and do the next right thing this can diminish over time. It won't happen right away though. Just know posting like this is not normal. I'm here for you though.
A great reminder of our insane behavior is to simply take a moment to look at all of the posts we have made. You can see this vicious cycle. Look at the posts month after month after month... It's apparent when you can physically see your behavior. Luckily when posting on Yahoo it saves so you can see this!
