‘The Politician’ is a complicated mess we cannot get enough of 

Netflix’s latest comedy-drama series “The Politician” is a satirical exaggeration of 21st century campaign tactics used in a high school election.

As a Philadelphian, one would think that seeing my beautiful city portrayed by five depraved, horrible people would make me upset, but it doesn’t at all. The city is already slandered as a hateful, pole-climbing hellscape, so if a hilarious show wants to pile it on more, that’s fine by me.
