From one of the greatest quotes and scenes of many from The Wire, as mayoral aide Norman Wilson, after answering a question from Mayor Carcetti in frustration on how crime went up in a short time after campaign promises to bring it down and his decision to enact budget cuts to the police dept while contemplating a run for governor.
Norman Wilson: [about Carcetti who is struggling with budgets] He shorts the police department, the crime rate stays up, he ain’t no governor, neither. Just a weak-ass mayor of a broke-ass city.
Tommy Carcetti : Feel better?
Norman Wilson : A little bit. You?
