Two from U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell: : "They're a wonderful medication ... They're called Ambien, which is very good. You don't use Ambien? Everybody here uses Ambien." : (Regarding reports of President Bush's untroubled sleep ...) "I sleep like a baby, too. Every two hours I wake up screaming!" --- Notes: I hesitated to post these, as they lead too readily to junk rhetoric and agitprop. But come on: "Everybody here uses Ambien." ?!? I was powerless. Sources follow.

"So do you use sleeping tablets to organize yourself?" Al-Rashed asked. "Yes. Well, I wouldn't call them that," Powell said. "They're a wonderful medication -- not medication. How would you call it? They're called Ambien, which is very good. You don't use Ambien? Everybody here uses Ambien." Really? Some folks across the river may conclude that explains a lot.
