The People's Friend
11 February 2016 | by jcolyer1229See all my reviews

Bart enters politics! Can you imagine a Maverick holding public office? But he runs for the State Senate against an unscrupulous politician named Cosgrove. When he draws a mustache on Cosgrove's poster, the sheriff confiscates his marker. Bart's speech and humor wins votes, but he just wants to play poker. Merry Anders as Penelope has to remind him that he represents the Reform Party. She allows him one vice. They kiss and probably do more. When the election ends in a tie, Bart's vote will decide it. He votes for Penelope's father. Jack Kelly became a real politician, serving on the Huntington Beach city council. James Garner joked that Kelly owned half of Orange County.
