Major Bilko, Defense Lobbyist

The perfect assignment for a Bilko
  (+7)

  [vote for,
against]

Major Eugene Bilko, grandson of Sgt Ernest Bilko (the conniving central character of the old "Phil Silvers Show"), retires from the Army, and of course goes to get his piece of the action in Washington DC, plying the family trade as any self-respecting con man with military connections would do.

From the hallowed halls of the Defense Appropriations Committee to the cocktail parties of Crystal City, Bilko always makes sure he gets more bucks for his bang!

       So this is some sort of fly-on-the-wall documentary, right?

       I don't believe Phil Silvers is available for the role.

       They did a movie back in '96 with Steve Martin as Bilko... I'm open to casting suggestions...

       But why? Oh, never mind, I don't watch television, so my expectations are unreasonably high.
