Larry Craig: The Musical

From Yahoo!:

Craig says new book will cover arrest turmoil

Wed May 28, 8:19 PM ET

WASHINGTON - Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, is writing a book that will reflect on the turmoil after his arrest last year in an airport sex sting.

Craig, 62, is retiring from Congress in January after 18 years in the Senate and a decade in the House.

He told KTVB-TV in Boise, Idaho, the book will focus on "the state of politics" in Washington, but also will review his career, including his arrest by an undercover officer in a men's room at the Minneapolis airport.

"There will be a bit of what's happened in the last year and the way it evolved," Craig said. "I think that's important for Idaho and those outside Idaho who are interested to know."


Coincidentally, I am working on a musical about Larry Craig. The working title is "Tiptoe Through The Toilets".

I've got a song for the officer accused of entrapment ("It's My Potty, and I'll Spy if I Want To"). Craig will take the stand and testify in his own defense ("If These Stalls Could Talk") and if he fails to sway the jury - which I doubt will happen, because the song is a country ballad, and it *kills* - the judge will sentence him to jail, and then sing "Foot, Foot, Footsie, Goodbye" as the bailiffs escort the Senator out of the courtroom.
