You can use the javascript webpart and output the information in a script block using a macro. Your macro would be something like:

<script type="text\javascript">
  var currUserID = {%MembershipContext.AuthenticatedUser.UserID%};
</script>

I don't know if you can assign the {%MembershipContext.AuthenticatedUser%} object to a js variable if it will keep the object structure or not but worth a try I guess.
