Not quite the eve of the hearings, but....

A friend in the MSM sends along the text of an email from Senator Schumer's office. The top part is a retort to a release from the office of Senator Cornyn (Rubber Stamp-TX), which is provided at the bottom:

'Twas a month after Miers, when all through the land,
Went a plague of amnesia 'bout how she was canned.

Now, Cornyn! Now, Sessions! Now Kyl and Frist!
Not one had some recall of how she was dissed.

They blathered and brayed about up-or-down votes,
They acted dismayed and gave virulent quotes.

They forgot how their own was battered and fried,
How an up-or-down vote on her was denied.

With her conservative views not patently clear,
They allowed a campaign of cynical smear.

On Alito, they say, he deserves confirmation,
But don't wait for the hearings, just accept coronation.

Don't ask if his views on the law are too cramped,
This substitute nom must be rubber-stamped.

So "advice and consent" gets thrown out the door,
When there's peace to be made with the right wing's hard core.


'Twas one month before the hearings, and all through the city
Not many Democrats were waiting, not even some on the Committee

The hard left was already distorting his rulings
Why wait for the hearings if you oppose all the President's doings?

Some Senators asked for privileged documents, no exception
So much for the "so-called" right to privacy protection

From strip searches to abortion, "he's an extremist!" they wailed
But we've heard it before-against Judge Roberts, it failed.

Of course the attacks will not turn the public
"Confirm him" they say, we want independent courts in our republic!
I have to say, the Cornyn thing is some of the worst poetry I've ever read. You'd think these guys never heard of meter (or maybe they just think it's a French term).
