Imperial General: "This battlestation is invulnerable."

Darth Vader: "You use that word so often. I do not think it means what you think it means."

Well, I had one last night, anyway. Some time into it, I suddenly realised that:

a) I was dreaming,
b) the dream would make a really good story, and
c) I would have a hard time getting the dialogue right.

At this point, I persuaded the people I was talking to to put the dream on hold while I went and found a suitable tape deck to record the rest of the dream with. Sadly, I failed to wake up clutching the cassette, and thus have only my slightly vague memories of the conversations in the dream to work from.

Following on from various coverage of the current American pre-presidential excitement, I was interested to read recently (in Counting Sheep, Paul Martin's excellent book on the 'science and pleasures of sleep') that Republican supporters were three times more likely to experience nightmares than their less conservative Democratic opponents. Even the non-nightmare dreams that Republicans reported were generally more frightening and more aggressive in content.

So do paranoia and aggressive instincts cause Republican voting, or are they its effect?
