L.A. Times Columnist Explains How Scalia’s Passing Impacts 2016 Race

The size of the Democratic base is growing
Because their main priorities
Have been looking out for the rights of gays
Women as well as minorities.

The size of the Republican base is shrinking
Since they’ve mostly set their sights
On the part of the electorate who can best
Be described as conservative whites.

Even if the GOP-controlled House and Senate
Won’t let a new justice enter
The Supreme Court, their delaying tactics put
This issue front and center.


In the exclusive, segregated part of heaven
Poor Nino must be feeling so bereft
To realize his departure will make the court
Probably move a bit more to the left.
