|After Scott Brown, in debate with Elizabeth Warren, named Antonin Scalia as his model Supreme Court justice, then, in reaction to crowd booing, added Kennedy, Roberts, and finally liberal Sotomayor.|
(to the tune of "Maria" from West Side Story)
The conservative justice Scott Brown praised:
Scalia, Scalia, Scalia, Scalia.
Leaving all who were watching a bit amazed:
Scalia, Scalia, Scalia, Scalia,
The first judge he named was Scalia.
He couldn't quite resist,
But everybody hissed the name.
He saw, was a real bad idea
So, though it sounded glib,
He countered with that lib'ral dame.
Say it loud and there's trouble brewing.
Say it soft to avoid all that booing.
Scott Brown is now ruing Scalia.
Scalia, Scalia etc.
Has a ring but it's just no use, it's
Not too popular in Massachusetts.
Like some fat robed moose sits Scalia.
