article imageOp-Ed: Sarah Palin, The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of

By Susan Duclos     Sep 9, 2008 in Politics
Seriously. People are dreaming of Sarah Palin. The writers of Slate have shared some of those nighttime fantasies and are encouraging their readers to share their own dreams of Palin.
As Slate points out, Palin is not the first politician to bring out fantasies, dreams and nightmares from political supporters and opposing political party supporters because in 1994 there was even a book which collected dreams about President Bill Clinton.
Sarah Palin has been on the political radar of the media, bloggers, forums and websites for a relatively short time but she has people dreaming about her.
When I mentioned my Palin dreams to Slate colleagues, they volunteered their own. One Obama-supporting colleague dreamed she had urged her young son to kill Palin with a string bean. Another dreamed she was at a fashion show and Palin served her crème fraîche on little scooped corn chips. A third says, "In the Sarah Palin dream I keep having, she has superhuman powers but is not really a person at all. In fact, she is more like the weather with glasses and an up-do, pushing clouds around and pitching lightning bolts."
Slate goes on to expand saying that working mothers envy her "supermom" abilities, Obama supporters are panicking and men are having sexual fantasies, all because of Sarah Palin.
Jonah Goldberg from The Corner has a suggestion for the folks over at Slate which is, "Guys, push away from the keyboard and take a walk around the block."
I would personally add another suggestion, "get mental help."
When people become so obsessed by politicians that they start dreaming about them at night, they have a problem.
Get a grip folks.
