The Lyrics

This is a belated tribute to the late Supreme Court Justice, whose absence has been felt recently in two split votes that failed to approve, modify or reverse lower court rulings. Original lyrics are here.
His opinions were sound and never blurred
(Scalia, Scalia, Scalia)
Call him dutiful, bound by the words that laws undergird
(Scalia, Scalia, Scalia, Scalia, Scalia, Scalia)

Scalia!
We just lost a judge named Scalia
And suddenly that court
Will this year be one short
Of nine

Scalia
Blind justice was learned from Scalia
His studied writings found
How Constitution's ground
Was fine

Sca-li-a
Lay knit shroud on his casket, praying
May we often recall most his sayings
Scalia,
They'll never stop weighing
Scalia

Scalia, Scalia,
Scalia, Scalia, Scalia, Scalia, Scalia, Scalia, Scalia
May his cloud land where music's playing
May his lofty writs calm most nay-saying

Scalia
I'll never stop praising
Scalia
The most true and profound was ev'ry word
Sca-li-a

If the Court is one short of nine this year, blame your shameful G.O.P.-led Senate, which refuses to exercise its obligation to the People and at least vote on the moderate appointee Judge Garland. By this time next year, Pres. Clinton will appoint an angry Black woman who is to the left of the late Justice William O. Douglas. And the Democrat(ic) Senate will approve. You will, as Scalia once said, "get over it."

A sickening hagiography. Vomitous! 1s.

The is nothing that can force the Senate to call a vote on any SC Justice. Furthermore, there is no time frame set. The GOP can insist on waiting until after Jan 20, 2017. Besides, nothing can compel them to even interview any candidate for the position. Obama just wants to force his will and the answer is a firm No from Republicans. Besides, it's in bad taste to present a candidate in an election year. SCOTUS, btw, is there to interpret the laws of the land, not to make laws and shred our Constitution.

Well, GOP, if you want to arbitrarily defer the Senate's duty of advise and consent, why limit it to one year? Why not two? Or three? Or more? "Obama just wants to force his will..."? Give me a break. It's his right and duty. "Bad taste..."? Give me another break. Election year appointments and confirmations have been done before -- with no excuses or dereliction of duty. The angry Black woman is waiting her turn. Get over it.

Since 1900, the Senate has voted on eight Supreme Court nominees during an election year. Six were confirmed.
The Senate has never taken more than 125 days to vote on a successor from the time of nomination; on average, a nominee has been confirmed, rejected or withdrawn within 25 days. When Justice Antonin Scalia died, 342 days remained in President Obama’s term.

GOP (Arndt): Your party of racists, white hegemony, corporate shills, the investor class and the malefactors of great and concentrated wealth is going the way of the Whigs. They used to be genuine conservatives -- Robert Taft, Arthur Vandenburg, William Scranton, Everett Dirksen, Jacob Javits -- but now they're a collection of rogues, crooks, bible-thumping adulterers, ignoramuses like Palin, religious fanatics, trailer trash, Beverly Hillbilly nostalgia fans, and either armchair soldiers like you or Lindbergh isolationists. You are done for. Get used to it.
