Gearing up for a manic Monday

I am back in Ohio after a wonderful experience at the terrific conference of the US District Court for the Eastern District of California.  The joys of the trip included sharing three meals with uber-blogger Howard Bashman, whose encyclopedic legal knowledge is evident in person as well as on his blog.

Proving there is no rest for the weary, I am already gearing up for a manic Monday.  By all reports, we are getting a SCOTUS nominee on Monday.  And, based on Tom Goldstein's prognostication in this post, it appears that Monday's order list from SCOTUS could include some serious criminal law action. 

Perhaps it is time to crank up the Bangles and page the songwriting geniuses at Begging the Question (especially because it's been far too long since they penned wonderful parodies like 'Twas the Night Before Booker and Desparado and Take a Walk on the Blakely Side).  Here's my effort:

Six o'clock already I was just in the middle of a dream
I was nominating Alito by a crystal blue Italian stream
But I can't be late 'cause then I guess pundits won't get paid
These are the days when you wish the pick was already made.

It's just another manic Monday (oh-woe)
I wish it was Sunday (oh-woe)
'Cause that's my Funday (oh-woe)
My I don't have to runday (oh)
It's just another manic Monday.

Should I make another early pick, and have it out again by nine?
That seemed so clever before, but it didn't quite work out last time
'Cause it takes me so long just to figure out who I'm gonna name
Blame it on the bloggers as I try to beat them at their game.

Don't worry, I know where my limited talents should take me. ;-)

That is a hilarious rendition of a fairly hip song. I am impressed. It's a proud day to be Italian-American.

There's another (better?) song about Alito at his new blog:
