TI­TLE BOUT

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

The loud­est gad­fly of the Clin­ton era has a new book out Oct. 13. Larry Klay­man — founder of Ju­di­cial Watch, em­peror of Free­dom of In­for­ma­tion Act re­quests and a for­mer U.S. Se­nate hope­ful — has penned “Whores: Why and How I Came to Fight the Es­tab­lish­ment,” now in ma­jor book­stores de­spite the ti­tle, which al­most didn’t make it into this pa­per.

“Well, that ‘w’ word is in the Bi­ble, so peo­ple can’t get too of­fended. And guess what? My next book will be called ‘Screwed.’ You think I’m kid­ding? It’s about the le­gal pro­fes­sion, and may re­quire 20 vol­umes,” Mr. Klay­man tells Belt­way in his best wag­gish mode, per­haps re­flec­tive of his re­cent foray into stand-up com­edy.

And not for laughs, he has also served Ira­nian Pres­i­dent Mah­moud Ah­madine­jad with a $10 bil­lion class-action com­plaint filed on be­half of “all op­pressed, tor­tured and mur­dered Ira­ni­ans seek­ing free­dom,” de­liv­ered to the leader via a “Mid­dle East­ern” jour­nal­ist in late Septem­ber.

“I’m based out of Los An­ge­les now, and I am still do­ing standup. It’s the only way I can sur­vive with the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion in charge,” Mr. Klay­man adds. “My mis­sion con­tin­ues to be ed­u­cate Amer­ica, and do it legally. We’re in cri­sis. Even the Left is mad now.”
