Bad Booker fix arising?

Ccr The possibility that the Justice Department might use next week's House hearing on Booker (details here and here) to push for a "minimum guideline system" Booker fix (a.k.a. topless guidelines) has provided inspiration for another Booker-skewed musical number.  With apologies to John Fogerty, here is a rendition of "Bad Moon Rising" for these Booker times:

I see the bad fix arising.
I see topless guidelines on the way.
I see appeals and circuit splitting.
I see bad times today.

Don't go down tonight,
Well, your bound to be reversed,
There's a bad fix on the rise.

I hear DOJ ablowing.
I worry the end is coming soon.
I fear dockets over flowing.
I hear defendants' rage and ruin.

Don't go down tonight,
Well, your bound to be reversed,
There's a bad fix on the rise.

Hope you got your motions together.
Hope you are prepared to go up High.
Looks like we're in for nasty litigation.
One eye is taken for an eye.
