Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.
What Sonia has done
Is so very impressive
So I am impressed

John Cornyn, R-Texas
We now all agree
Judges channel the Framers
Empathy is toast
 
Dick Durbin, D-Ill.
Guys ‘n’ gals differ
It’s not that one is biased
We just come that way

Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.
A prosecutor
Badass on white collar crime
Tough chick. Just like me.

Arlen Specter, D-Pa.
Ethnic pride is good
But this is not me crying
It’s just the chemo
