Despair is involuntary, ones' reaction to it may or may not be. The difficulty resisting a self-destructive response is the issue.
I sort of challenge 'involuntary.' When an emotional reaction like that comes along, you sort of have options sometimes. You can jump on and ride it, or you can argue with it, or you can just wait for it to go away.

Waiting or distraction works most of the time, a pile-on of overwhelming challenges can overcome such measures. "Riding" despair is something I wouldn't do, the path goes down in a death spiral.

The Secret to Brett Kavanaugh's Specific Appeal
The nominee’s transgressions, far from marking him as unfit, signal to his supporters that he is trustworthy—he is one of them.

This is, I believe, the greatest appeal that Kavanaugh holds for the Republicans: The rules that apply to others do not apply to them. One of the most vivid illustrations of this maxim is the recent history of the very position for which he is nominated. When President Obama tapped Merrick Garland for the Supreme Court, McConnell decreed that such appointments could not be made in an election year. Now, with Trump in the White House, and a Republican majority Senate, McConnell proclaims that not only may a Justice be nominated and approved, but the confirmation process must be completed with the greatest haste possible. “We’re going to plow right through it.” It is their world, and they make the rules.

WASHINGTON — The White House is limiting the scope of the FBI’s investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, multiple people briefed on the matter told NBC News.

While the FBI will examine the allegations of Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, the bureau has not been permitted to investigate the claims of Julie Swetnick, who has accused Kavanaugh of engaging in sexual misconduct at parties while he was a student at Georgetown Preparatory School in the 1980s, those people familiar with the investigation told NBC News. A White House official confirmed that Swetnick's claims will not be pursued as part of the reopened background investigation into Kavanaugh.

That smarmy prick, Bart O'Kavanaugh oughta pack up his shitty little roadshow and shuffle off to Buffalo. His red-faced angry snowflake schtick isn't fooling anybody.

A dictatorship kangaroo court of a hearing for rubber stamping a candidate who disqualified himself with his intemperate and blatantly partisan testament.
Whether the aftertaste survives a few days reflection is hard to say.
