The Lyrics

Interestingly, this offering is not anti - Sonia Sotomayor. You won't even find the words "wise Latina" used here...I'm trying to back away from and put behind me the speeches (and, if you watched the hearings, so is she. Enough already!). Instead, I turn the blunt instrument of my humor upon the circus of the hearings itself and Sotomayor's handlers. The media proclaims these hearings to be incomparable "political theater." I find this comparison to a evening of pleasant and light diversion insulting, inappropriate, and silly...in other words, just normal for the media. ;D
(Instrumental Intro)

In the committee - There's a nominee with empathy
All Obama's gang won't budge
They're all screaming for a liberal judge

(In the committee - there's a nominee with empathy
All Obama's gang won't budge
They're all screaming for a liberal judge)

Now people must act respectfully
Or get thrown out by Pat Leahy
He'll have no jabbing with a pitch fork
Like Kennedy did to Robert Bork

(In the committee - there's a nominee with empathy
All Obama's gang won't budge
They're all screaming for a liberal judge)

(Instrumental Chorus)

This is a place where hopefully
Republicans will use civility
Al Franken's there to make the call
But he knows nothing about the law

(In the committee - there's a nominee with empathy
All Obama's gang won't budge
They're all screaming for a liberal judge)

(Instrumental Chorus)

Training, knowledge, thought, research, experience, judicial restraint
Do not count! They're just stench!
They want legislating from the bench!

(In the committe - there's a nominee with empathy
All Obama's gang won't budge
They're all screaming for a liberal judge)

(Instrumental Chorus)

Now the S and the O and the T and the O
And the M and the A and the Y - O - R
A smoke screen that they've put there
While they "cap and trade" and run health care!

Now the S and the O and the T and the O
And the M and the A and the Y - O - R
A smoke screen that they've put there
While they "cap and trade" and run health care!

(Instrumental Outro)



I know I'm funnier when I stick to everyday topics and matters to which we all can relate. I wish material would stop presenting itself to me. ;D

This ranks high in my Court of Appeal! And thanks-- your OS choice introduced me to a great group!

I do wish the squirrely nuts on the committee would zip it.

Not familiar with the OS, but you've summed up events succinctly. I've been waiting for the Pop-Up Video version myself.
