"Stop acting like a politician and behave like a human being."
In returning to topics in American popular culture, I lately have been reminded of this show, which I used to watch when I was a kid. Many of you will remember "Alderman Davis." In Clip #1, an idealistic challenger of the status quo attempts to take on Alderman Davis on the issues. In Clip #2, Alderman Davis calls the Evanses his "...favorite project family." In Clip #3, you will see how "patronage" works, as the Alderman admits he will use his political influence to get a job for his niece rather than have her compete fairly with Florida. Enjoy.
