Columnist Judith Warner: I Dreamt Obama Was In My Shower

By Robert Paul Reyes


"The other night I dreamt of Barack Obama. He was taking a shower right when I needed to get into the bathroom to shave my legs, and then he was being yelled at by my husband, Max, for smoking in the house. It was not clear whether Max was feeling protective of the president`s health or jealous because of the cigarette." Judith Warner/New York Times

Judith Warner is not a political editorialist, her weekly column can best be described as chick-lite ruminations that induce nausea in the typical guy. I would no more read her articles than I would use sawdust instead of toothpaste to brush my teeth.

A wet dream about Obama shouldn`t be published by the New York Times, even in a blog entitled "Domestic Disturbances."

Ms. Warner`s essay runs longer than the typical political editorial, but I won`t bother to critique the entire thing. Suffice to say that Warner`s post doesn`t get any better after the first paragraph.

"Many women - not too surprisingly - were dreaming about sex with the president."

Maybe so, but I`m sure that the vast majority of women couldn`t care less what Obama looks like. Most women aren`t dreaming about sex with the president, they are praying and hoping that Obama will address issues important to them: Health care, education and a woman`s right to choose.

Warner`s photograph appears next to her column, and I must say that I`m probably going to dream about taking a shower with the very attractive New York Times columnist.

I can just hear some ladies calling me a "male chauvinist pig", but what`s good for the goose is good for the gander.

I have learned my lesson, I will avoid the New York Times blogs like the plague.
