Now that Harriet Miers is back doing whatever it is she does best (writing Bush mash notes and covering his tracks?) Bush has a new nominee to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

By Madeleine Begun Kane
There once was a judge named Alito,
Who's often called Judge Sam Scalito.

At labor he glowers.
The Dems must Alito's name veto.
All four of the limericks are here.
And my audio / podcast version is here.
