when someone is selected for something of importance or great honor from their family name or possibly religious based names.
John Smith was the best baseball player to ever play for his high school. John is now graduated and his little brother Matt Smith is a freshman, but he isn't close to being as good as John, but he was still selected to be on varsity even though Tim Johnson, a sophomore, is better than Matt. Matt Smith made varsity because of "small town politics" and Tim Johnson didn't make the team because of "small town politics."
