BUT, all I have to do is disconnect and reconnect the battery, and suddenly it'll start up like nothing ever happened.

I had a great guy from AAA show me that tapping on the solenoid would allow it to start. I've only had to do it once myself and it didn't work the first two times I tried. The third time I tapped a little harder at the end closest to the connection to the starter motor itself and that worked.
Click and clack you to joke about this all the time. I actually tried tapping on the starter motor itself a few times when I was was trying to diagnose the problem but that didn't work. It's all in knowing where to do it. I'll update this if I learn more.
