Alexandra JacobsIt's amusing to see Washington fixed by such a vodka-gimlet eye; we can all recognize the type of government geek who refuses to remove his security badge -- ''how canine,'' sniffs Jackie -- or posts photos of himself taken with famous politicians on a ''Me Wall.'' Since the days of Dawn Powell, airy novels by women about women seeking men, slopping cocktails, shopping, and slogging through dull jobs have been set mostly in Manhattan. The chicks that flock to the seat of the federal government are generally in search of career advancement, not Christian Louboutin-clad fun. So perhaps the Beltway bunch should be grateful for this lewd, unpretentious valentine to their city.
