McCain TV Poll

What do you think?



In case you forgot...

Sugarfoot
Sugarfoot is the title of a TV western that aired from 1957 to 1961. The series featured Will Hutchins as fledgling frontier lawyer Tom Brewster and Jack Elam as sidekick Toothy Thompson. Brewster was a correspondence-school graduate whose apparent lack of cowboy skills earned him the peculiar nickname "Sugarfoot".

Gentle Ben
The show stars a young Clint Howard (Ron Howard's brother) as Mark Wedloe, and chronicles his adventures with a lovable 650-pound American black bear.

Medical Center
The show starred James Daly as Dr. Paul Lochner and Chad Everett (Richard Bradford in the pilot) as Dr. Joe Gannon, surgeons working in an otherwise unnamed university hospital in Los Angeles. The show focused both on the lives of the doctors as well as the patients showcased each week.

This one is pretty good...

At the core of the series was the tension between youth and experience, as seen between Drs. Lochner and Gannon. Helping the doctors was efficient Nurse Wilcox, played by Audrey Totter. She started out as a bit role but was eventually upgraded to co-star status starting in 1972.


Maude
Maude starred Beatrice Arthur as Maude Findlay, an outspoken, middle-aged, politically liberal woman living in suburban Tuckahoe, Westchester County, New York with her fourth husband. Maude embraced the tenets of women's liberation, always voted for Democratic Party candidates, strongly supported legal abortion, and advocated for civil rights and racial and gender equality. However, her overbearing and sometimes domineering personality often got her into trouble when speaking out on these issues.

Chico and the Man
Chico and the Man was an American sitcom which ran on NBC from September 13, 1974 to July 21, 1978, starring Jack Albertson as Ed Brown (The Man), the cantankerous owner of a run down garage in an East Los Angeles barrio, and introducing Freddie Prinze as Chico Rodriguez, an upbeat, optimistic Chicano street kid who comes in looking for a job. It was the first U.S. television series set in a Mexican-American neighborhood.

I think Ed is pretty much McCain...

McCain Ed doesn't want any Chico's help and distrusts all foreigners Chicanos. A hard-drinking adulterer widower, he stubbornly refuses to fit in with the changing neighborhood and has alienated most of the people who live around him. Ed uses ethnic slurs and berates minorities and women Chico in an effort to get themhim to leave.

I would like to see Maude get a hold of McCain......that is why I cast my vote that direction.
