Jeffrey LewisEdwards Introduces Dr. Strangelove

Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. John Edwards has taped an introduction for a Turner Classic Movies screening of Stanley Kubrick/’s 1964 Cold War classic Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.

The Chicago Tribune reports:

Edwards says he selected Kubrick/’s black comedy because “I believe that one of the messages Kubrick was trying to send was that putting this kind of power and this potential holocaust in the hands of human beings, no matter who they are, is an extraordinarily dangerous thing.”

Senator John McCain, about whom I am less enthusiastic, will introduce another magnificent Kubrick film, Paths of Glory.

(“No matter who …” but sometimes especially.)
