Sleep paralysis, leave me alone

It is 3 a.m. and the room is dark. My dog begins to bark. I open my eyes and stare at a dark figure standing by my feet. I try to shout but nothing comes out and when I try to move, I am frozen.

<i>Commentary</i>: Democracy in the 21st century: What a joke

Despite all the negative, sometimes irrelevant, garbage that both parties have been throwing at each other before the debate, I believed that President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney would take those 90 minutes to present their plans for the future of this country in a nice, civil, mature manner.
