LET GEORGE DO IT by John Foster


Email this review


A basic course in practical politicking is hung onto Peter Martin who wins the friendship of heeler George and thereby is cornered into running for representative. How his program is shaped up, how George's ability to con 'em and yet not actually misrepresent his candidate and how Peter, after getting the nomination, makes his bloopers at rallies, in framed situations, over the radio and in a paternity case- winds up with the election in which an innocent never loses his novice look. Dependent on the tricks of the trade (and trading), on the gallery of characters who surround Peter and on the fabricated pattern into which he is fitted -- this doesn't too high a risibility content and fits into a better than nothing department.
