Hammhawk just diagnosed me with "defense pessimism." Before I engage in anything where the outcome is up in the air, I get depressed because I think I'm going to lose, and then if I lose it eases the pain, and if I win, I'm surprised and happy.
Today, I'm surprised and happy because the Hornets dominated the Mavericks 127-103. And at the same time, even though everyone including me predicted the outcome, I'm depressed with no easement of pain because I have to listen to Hillary brag about her Pennsylvania victory, at least until May 6th. Come on voters in Indiana and North Carolina, especially older working class Caucasians and Catholic women (Obama's least favorable demographic), I want to see Obama debate McCain.
