52. it sounds more like some people are boxed into a corner
they gushed (spooged) soo much about a particular candidate that they got entrenched in their support... to the point where it would be downright embarassing to back away now...

I suppose the same could be said on both sides of the fence... but then so many threads seem to say "i used to be a hillary supporter blah blah.."

Anyway, when you get yourself into an intractable and potentially embarrassing situation, sometimes the best way to deal with it is to seek constant re-inforcement from like-minded folks and to ignore anything that does not conform with your newly adopted political view by using iggy lists and encouraging folks to "let it sink"...

If you want to avoid embarrassment and pain to the detriment of the party as a whole... I'm not going to stop you... but then anyone that I would be saying this to probably already has me on iggy anyway...
