I Had a Dream, I Had an Awesome Dream

Yeah, the title is from Lionel Richie. Don't tell me you've never had a Lionel Richie song stuck in your head.

I had a very bizarre dream last night. It was election night, 2004, and I was at some kind of convention/political thingy with a crowd of people, watching election results coming in on a really big screen TV.

Suddenly there was an excited buzzing in the room. Apparently California's results were coming in and George Bush was winning California! Everyone started yelling about landslides and precedents and Reagan and all this other stuff and confetti dropped from the ceiling--I must have been at RNC headquarters.

Meanwhile I had found a dark room off of the main convention floor. The room was empty except for a couple of computers and a large aquarium that had a hole in it. Water had poured out onto the floor, but the aquarium still had enough water left for the few fish that were swimming around in there. A Bill Gates-looking fellow was standing behind the aquarium, stooped over and peering through the hole as if trying to figure out exactly what had happened.

"What's going on?" I asked him.

"It broke," he said sadly.

Then I woke up confused, thinking that I needed to turn on the TV for election results.

I have no idea what any of that meant--was it a subconscious meditation on my belief that the Democrats don't have much (so far) to offer me in 2004? Was it a sinister portent of the eeeevilllle that will occur if Bush wins in 2004? Was it just that last glass of wine before bed?

I am clue free on that one, folks. But it was certainly a vivid dream and I felt compelled to share. Interestingly, I woke up in a good mood.
Does that make me a member of the eeeevillle GWB cabal? I've always wanted to be part of a cabal...but only if I get to carry the Hammer of Righteous Smiting and crush the bad guys.

Eh, it was probably the wine.

Um, I think liberal pop psychology has seeped into your mind. As every serious student of NBC Dateline knows, water=sex, at least in dreams, and in Brooke Shields movies.

Clearly, if Bush is re-elected, you fear that you will have no more sex, hence the broken water container. As Katie Couric could tell you, Republicans don't have sex, mainly because they hate children, but also because they are mean people.

See? It's so easy to interpret your dreams when you understand the semiotics. Republicans = Evil is the basic rule, and if you employ this, you can't go wrong. Most dreams since 1980 have had this theme, by the way.

If you are worried about this premonition of no more sex following a Bush win in 2004, then I have a sure-fire cure. Let's work hard, and make sure we have a Dem sweep in November 2004.

Then we'll all be fucked.
