 About the Book 

What has happened to us, Congress? Am I different? Yeah. Have I changed my pants? No. Deep down my colleagues know they want to wear wider bottoms—they are just not secure enough to do it. I do wear skinny ties. Yeah, wide ties make me look heavierMoreWhat has happened to us, Congress? Am I different? Yeah. Have I changed my pants? No. Deep down my colleagues know they want to wear wider bottoms—they are just not secure enough to do it. I do wear skinny ties. Yeah, wide ties make me look heavier than I am and I am heavy enough. Do I do my hair with a weed whacker? I admit it.—U.S. Rep. James A. Traficant, addressing Congressional peers for the final time.Poet. Farmer. Congressman. Convicted Felon.When James A. Traficant, Jr., was expelled from the U. S. House of Representatives on July 24, 2002, he took with him a briefcase filled with transcripts of the most colorful and outrageous political oratory of our times. On the record and off the wall with the elected official who told us I feel like theres an elephant beneath my ascot, Beam Me Up gives the best of Traficants unusual speeches a reprieve from the shredder.
