Politics Anonymous

Hi, my name is Tony Accardi and I am a political junkie (”Hi, Tony”). Over the years I have tried to quit on my own but have had little success. Oh sure, sometimes I even went six months without reading or talking about politics. But in the end my urges always won out. I am weak… I admit it. For me watching last night’s election coverage was like a sculptor seeing Michelangelo’s David for the first time. I delighted in flipping from news outlet to news outlet making sure I didn’t miss a comment or updated result. In reflection the excitement culminated with irrationality. My poor wife…last night around 10:30PM I woke her up with a shake and a shout… “Honey, New England Cable News has results on the Clerk of Courts race in Franklin County”. Looking into her half opened eyes I could read her thoughts…“I live with a sick man”. I recognize my problem and am working to control it. This morning I made a promise to myself. I will be stronger during the general election. I promise to talk about politics with no more emotion than if I were talking casually about the weather… “Yes, yes, I do agree, that senate race in Duke’s County is somewhat intriguing, but you know, I think it might rain today”…I know I can do it…I know I can…at least until I see the first negative advertisement.
