Could a dumb ditty like that sway a major decision? If so, get ready for...
Senator Arlen Specter speech - "The votes are in; I guess I blew it. With voter rage, and at my age; most pundits knew it. But I'm not done yet, let there be no mys-tery; I'll be running in the fall with the Tea Par-ty..."
Elena Kagan testimony - "Do I look gay? How dare you wonder. Your group's a joke; the system's broke, and gone asunder. If I am confirmed, you all know so very well. I'll sit on the bench and never ask or tell..."
