    That would, of course, make your comments even more pointless.

    Your basic problem, though, as I've stated in other comments, is an inability to distinguish between the fact that you're pessimistic, and the reality that there are issues to be pessimistic about.

    I've reported the latter, and you've been responding to me that the latter doesn't matter, because you suffer from the former.

    That actually doesn't make a great deal of sense.

    No matter how pessimistic you are about the outcome, the fact remains that the vote was held, and some people (there are, it turns out, others here besides you, despite your jaded chic) were interested in knowing that.

    There's no need for you to humbly withdraw your incredulity. You need only recognize that it bears no actual relevance to the question of whether the news ought to be reported.

      Yes, I can hope for a miracle as you do, but history and common sense dictate otherwise.

      My view is only pessimism if it stands in opposision to what your desired outcome is; others would simly call it a realitry based assessment.

      Maybe things will change. I haven't given up hope, just given up on this congress.
