The Lyrics

Inspiration!!
She pushed it away
Won't look at it, "cause it's forever
Between you and me
I can honestly say
The choice was made for the better

Now she's gone away
Told Bush that "she's not the guy'
And it won't be long
Before Dubya has some
Other lackey to work
By his side

And I guess that's why
Ol' Miers is through
She threw up her hands
Threw the towel in too
Sick of the stories,
Wrought with frustration
Now she's withdrawing
Her nomination
And I guess
That's why Ol' Miers is through

"Just stare into space
Picture my face in your hands"
Bush gave instructions
For after induction
And hoped that she would understand

Miers, my girl
Try as she might, approval fell
It's just as well
I guess that she knew
To work for the Shrub
Would be hell

And I guess that's why
Ol' Miers is through
No Court Supreme
In her future, it's true
Lacking experience
For such a station
Now she's withdrawing
Her nomination
And I guess
That's why Ol' Miers is through

---- Instrumental Interlude ----

Miers, my girl
Try as she might, approval fell
It's just as well
I guess that she knew
To work for the Shrub
Would be hell

And I guess that's why
Ol' Miers is through
She threw up her hands
Threw the towel in too
Sick of the stories,
Wrought with frustration
Now she's withdrawing
Her nomination
And I guess
That's why Ol' Miers is through

{Sick of the stories)
(Wrought with frustration}
And I guess
That's why Ol' Miers is through

{Lacking experience)
(For such a station}
And I guess
That's why Ol' Miers is through

And I guess
That's why Ol' Miers is through

Brilliant. Fits the OS so very well: the chorus is perfect :-)

If Miers was as good as this song, she'd have passed the Senate by a 99-1 vote. (There's always one intransigent who won't go with something good.)

Now you get to suck on Scalito, lefties!
