Dream On: Liberals More Restless In Bed Than Conservatives

BERKELEY, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Liberals have a reputation for being wilder in bed than conservatives – and new research shows they also have wilder dreams.

Dream researcher Kelly Bulkeley studied folks on both ends of the political spectrum to see if they had different dream patterns.

His findings show liberals are more restless in bed, remember more of their dreams and are more likely to have bizarre elements in their dreams – such as George W. Bush zombies.

Conservatives, on the other hand, sleep more soundly, remember fewer dreams and are less likely to dream about specific political figures or events.

In fact, only one of the 100 conservatives Bulkeley studied remembered having a dream with a political reference: A 36-year- old conservative woman from Pennsylvania who dreamed she was helping President Bush work on his ranch.

When the time comes, Bulkeley wants to find out whether conservatives have more nightmares and restless sleep when a liberal is in office.
