Yep. If they were competent, corrupt cronies, you'd have 50's Kansas City, or Chicago under Daley, or my introduction to San Francisco politics:
"And we vote for Willie Brown."
--"But you just said all that stuff about the trash collectors' union..."
" Yes, he's a crook -- but he's OUR crook. And he gets things done."

Indeed, if they were competent, we'd be way less likely even to notice that they were corrupt. Well, most of us.
And competent cronies who aren't corrupt are no big deal at all.
