DC Intern Diaries

I'm a female 24 year old DC permanent intern. You name it and I've probably interned it. I'm also a graduate student in DC.

Aww...Poor Rummy

Rumsfield admitted yesterday that his feelings got hurt when people accused him of being insensitive to the fact that he arrogantly sent his troops into a sinkhole of carnage - a vicious, persistent insurgency - without the proper armor, equipment, backup or preparation.

His disgraceful admission that his condolence letters to the families of soldiers killed in Iraq were signed by machine - "I have directed that in the future I sign each letter," he said in a Strangelovian statement - is redolent of the myopia that has led to the dystopia.

By the way, strangelovian is my word of the day. Problem is, I can't find a definition of it. I particularly love the sentence "is redolent of the myopia that has led to the dystopia." Love it.

I assumed that. But what does "strangelovian" mean? I admit I haven't seen the movie. So I don't quite understand what theme/part/character traits it is referring to.

You really should see the film, especially if your working in the capital. It's one of the most important political satires of the 20th century.
