SENATE CONFIRMATION

SENATE CONFIRMATION
(To the tune of Chattanooga Choo-Choo (1941) by Harry Warren & Mack Gordon)

To get on a court,
you need approval from the Senate.
It takes sixty votes.
So don’t be getting up hopes

You’ll get nowhere sport.
No matter how much you’ve been vetted.
Especially,
for the appeals court in DC.

Obama’s nominations linger in committee for years.
Reid is talking nuclear to GOP jeers.
To need one more than fifty
only, would be nifty.
Have confirmation passage in a jiffy.

Sad to report,
with empty seats up on the benches,
misuse of the rules,
by filibustering fools.
