The mere fantastic nimbleness of the story is rather amusing, carried along at a good reckless clip. The directors and players go at it as if it really could happeneven as if it were happening, authentically, in Washington. Miss Durbin, when she gets a chance, sings as nicely as ever. It adds up to painless pastime and, if that's the way everyone is carrying on in the nation's capital, the Republicans' chances look better than ever.
