What has been absent from all the rejoicing about the nomination of Judge Sotomayor? Why, a celebratory ode, of course. We humble scribes must supply the deficiency.
All hail the brave and wise Latina!
Compelling is her story!
And jurisprudent her demeanor —
She’s on the path to glory!
At SCOTUS she’ll make policy
(What need for legislators?)
More jobs! More opportunity!
For twofer second-raters.
Latina wisdom, egged on by
La Raza mischief-makers,
With fill her soul with empathy
(Though not for white test-takers).
