Sunday Facepalm.


Today Eugene Delgaudio, a Religious Right activist and former Republican politician based in Virginia, today released a new music video, “A Justice Like Scalia,” in praise of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.

In the video, the “Confirm Gorsuch Ensemble” urged the Senate to confirm Gorsuch because he is, as Trump promised, a jurist in the mold of the late Antonin Scalia: “Oh Mamma Mia, another Scalia!”

It is sung to the tune of “Get Me To The Church On Time” and “How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?” and is just as good the original musical hits.

For the impaired, there’s considerable sarcasm in that last sentence. I, uh, I just have no words at all. Some laughter yes, but meaningful commentary? No. If you’re in the mood for a bit of self torture, here ya go:

    Oh gods. Yep, same vicarious embarrassment!

    This um, effort at a medley, was, oh, I couldn’t get through the whole thing, shortly after the “how do you find a mind like Scalia’s” and the strained high notes, I was out. I’m not sure embarrassment covers it.

  2. Pierce R. Butler says

    I can only hope that Gorsuch himself hears this and, um, enjoys it as much as we do.

    Can’t do it, can’t force myself to listen to that.
    If one were to judge a judge by their supporters…
    E for Effort? Enthusiasm? Whatever it is that made them do this, it isn’t of this world.
