BOISE - Outgoing Sen. Larry Craig revealed tonight that he is writing a book.
In a live interview on NewsChannel 7 Tuesday night â Craig, 62 - told Dee Sarton that he is in the process of writing a book on energy - that will also talk about his time in Congress â and the events of the past year.
"There will be a bit of what's happened in the last year, and the way it evolved,â Craig said. âI think that's important for Idaho and those outside Idaho who are interested to know."
He hopes the book will be on store shelves in the next year.
"We're in the process of putting it together,â he said. âUsually those books take six or seven months to write, and another eight or nine months (to finish).â
Craig was arrested in a bathroom at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport last summer, after police say he attempted to solicit gay sex from an undercover officer in a bathroom stall.
Craig said he is mulling over a number of opportunities for his post-Senate career. He said he is having a number of âone way conversationsâ â right now he canât engage potential jobs due to Senate ethics rules, but can listen to offers.
"It will probably be not quite retirement. I'm certainly plan to stay busy. A lot of opportunities are beginning to appear."
Craig also reiterated his earlier endorsement of Lt. Gov. Jim Risch to replace him.
This should make for great toilet reading.
sounds like a real toe-tapper
I’m quivering with antici.... pation.
Nobody, not even Enquiring minds, wants to know............... as for a title, "America's Top 10 Airport Restrooms: A Personal Review".............
Morse Code From The Commode
The Plummer: How the Gay Bathroom Culture Prepared Me for Washington Hardball.
It may not end up on bookshelves, but it could end up hanging in mens room stalls across the nation.
"Larry Craig doesn't tap dance around controversy as he flushes down his critics by taking a wide stance on everything from water boarding to water closets"
Perhaps he should write a few articles for “The Gay Blade” first, just to get his chops wet.
“How I Chased Geronimo Into The Men’s Room At The Airport, And Lived To Tell The Tale...
“Or, How My Wide Stance, Hurt My Chance, Of Starting A Great Romance.”
Chapter 1: “I go to that bathroom regularly”
Chapter 2: The art of the wide stance
Chapter 3: How to keep your pants from sliding down
Chapter 4: When to pick up TP scraps and when to leave them on the floor
Chapter 5: Tap, Tap, Tap
Chapter 6: “I don’t do those sorts of things”
Chapter 7: Rent-free accomodations
Chapter 8: The secret knock
GO AWAY LARRY!
“Tiptoe through the Tulips”
Suggested working title: “Stalling....It’s My Calling!”
” Waiting For the Other Shoe To... Tap”
I knew this thread had laughs written all over it and it didn’t disappoint. Too many good posts here to comment on them all, congrats to all of you. Keep ‘em coming! I couldn’t resist.
“Is that the Men’s Washroom Key in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? “
“Wide Stance and Toe Taps. One Man’s Journey: Learning to Love, 5 Minutes at a Time.”
“I am Not Gay, Nor Have I Ever Been Gay.” Some broadway producer will probably buy the rights to make this book into a musical. It’s got all the attributes of a hit: suspense, catchy songs, toe tapping and cloaked in the mystery of homosexuality.
Omg. You’re right. This has Broadway musical written all over it.
(hey, it'll get him a lot of free publicity on every CNN/NBC show...)
“Lean, Mean, and Queen of the Latrine”
"I Didn't Blow It, So Stop Stalling"
"Mister Bojangles: A Minneapolis Romance"
I’ve seen Craig on C-SPAN a couple of times in the past few months, asking questions in congressional hearings, earnestly endeavoring to be taken seriously.
With wide stanzas.
Minnesota baseball team hands out “bobble-foot” dolls as a promotion
“Wide Stance at the glory hole - my exploits through airport bathrooms around the country”
Craig’s book probably won’t even fly on CraigsList...
Sen. Craig promises the book will be delivered in a plain brown envelope.
