Let's Call the Hearings Off!

Senator Jerry Moran actually had the gall to suggest that Congress ought to do what the Constitution says it should do and hold hearings on the President’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland. Right-wingers went ballistic and slapped him down so quickly that his little Cowardly Lion bow almost fell out of his hair!

Oh, I say tomato, you say tomah-to,
Ok, forget I ever said tomato
You scared me! A lot – Oh! I’ll switch to tomah-to!
Let’s call the hearings off.

I said it’s our duty
You said kiss my booty!
You said our job’s obstruction – ignore the Constitution!
You said you would target me in the next election
Hey, Let’s call the hearings off

Oh, I must have been out of my mind
To suddenly have grown a spine
Big donors, they control my fate
I forgot I’m an invertebrate

You said we oughtn’ta and I said we ought-er
You said you’d target me for a slaughter
I can’t take the scolding and that’s why I’m folding
Let’s call the hearings off!
