Romney-Ryan is likely the best matched 'team' that has been on a national ticket in a very long time.
When I was an impoverished graduate student, I would sometimes spend $20 or $30 on a T-shirt or accessory I didn't need or even particularly want. What I craved was the purchase, not the thing itself. Of course, a sense of not being deprived may fill an emotional void without ruinous consequences.
My own approach has always been to push intense emotions down and attempt to deal with them later.
