Lugar Will Be Free in January: Top Ideas for Future

Richard Lugar has spent a lifetime in the public eye, and I believe he's going to have a hard time stepping away from it so easily even at the advanced age of 80.  Perhaps if a certain current Secretary of State decides to hang it up for Obama's second term, as she has said she might, maybe the Prez can make a phone call to Senator Lugar.  I can't really think of a better candidate.

But, just for fun, I made a list of a number of things that Senator Lugar can now do to relax and let his hair down a bit if he decides to get away from the public eye.

  • Invest in Bermuda shorts, long black socks, slip on shoes, a straw hat, and a cabana shirt and buy a mobile home in a retirement trailer park in Florida
  • Grow out his hair and a beard and become a professional Gandalf impersonator
  • Become a cast member on Betty White's Off Their Rockers
  • Nose piercing with a navel chain
  • 3:00 a.m. daily prank calls to the home of Richard Mourdock
  • Just randomly walk around the city and keep saying, "I'm Richard Lugar, and I approve this message."
  • Two words: Wal-Mart greeter!
  • Buy a new car and drive around in the fast lane slowly with the left turn signal on.  Preferably on stretches of road where there are only two lanes of traffic.
  • Start practicing for Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest
  • Become a Spokesman for Life Alert
  • Develop a New Game Show for former World Leaders called "Let's Make an Arms Deal"
  • Sleep in until 6:30 a.m. and go to bed after Jeopardy!
  • Finally get around to writing that romance novel
  • Use skill as shrewd arms negotiator on America's Got Talent
  • Begin every sentence with, "BACK IN MY DAY."
  • Get that detailed tattoo of the Senate Chamber on his back
  • Try to qualify for the Indy 500
  • Start a gang with other ex-Senate friends called the Upper Housers
Any suggestions you have for the soon-to-be former Senator?  Keep them civil.
