The Literary Candidate

You know what the Dodd presidential campaign needs?

A crappy book. Everyone is doing it. Even Hillary Clinton is re-issuing It Takes a Village.

These books are all terrible. The writing (which, admittedly, is rarely done by the candidate) stinks, the points (when they exist) are dull and the conclusions are uninspiring. But they're great excuses to go on talk shows, and they get your name in front of Barnes & Noble browsers and library patrons, so why not?

Here are some possible titles:

Hair: The Chris Dodd Story

Doddering Off into the Future

My Dad was a Senator, Too

Experience! Lots and Lots of Experience!

I'm Not Hillary

I'm Not Joe Lieberman, Either

My Meeting with the Little People

Eh, You Could Do Worse

Any other suggestions? He really needs to get on this.

I guess the majority of people who posted went to the John Kerry school of comedy. Making fun of his hair and longevity??? What cutting edge humor......

Matt said...

Credit to Dodd for shooting down some bad Bush appointees and proposing some decent progressive legislation -- one good thing about a candidate that starts from behind is that they think they have to work for your support.

since matt took it away from naming Dodd's book let me say that two years ago Dodd may have been right about Bolton but Bolton has proved himself since then at the UN to be the right guy at the right time. And I support Dodd's proposed Millitary Commission Act revisions, too bTW.

Actually, Dodd does have a book coming out, or at least one that he'll be associated with. It's a collection of letters his father sent his mother during the Nuremburg Trials. He will have a byline on it, although of course a ghostwriter will be doing almost all the work.

His hair and his longevity is all he's got.

The Bolton book would be more interesting: How I got fired for persuading communist China to step on the throat of Kim Il Sung, that rat, with a forward from Tom Dodd, the anti communist.
