Awesome! Check Out Obama's New Nominee to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals

You've got to be pretty hard core to fight against the death penalty in the case of an eight-time serial strangler (seven time rapist, too).

Especially when the rapist-murderer himself doesn't want to fight his execution any further.

You've got to be really hardcore to bully the guy's lawyer into signing a motion for a stay of execution that the client didn't want but you wanted to sign.

Admitted. Guilty as sin.

So why this fight for a rapist-murderer's life?

Obama's nominee thought he was the "least culpable" of all death row inmates, because, he feels, a tendency towards sexual sadism as he had should be a mitigating factor, not merely against the death penalty, but conviction, too.


You know who else is motivated by sexual sadism? All other serial killers in history.

But, you know, we can't even convict him; because he wanted to rape and strangle women to death proves he suffered from sexual sadism syndrome (or whatever) and therefore he's innocent. Must be -- if you have a desire to do this therefore you're too sick to punish therefore, effectively, it's not against the law to strange and rape eight women to death.

To commit the crime is de facto proof of innocence of the crime, in this guy's understanding of the law. If you commit serial rape and murder, you must have some sexual sadism tendencies, and therefore, of course, you don't have the necessary competency to be convicted and certainly not executed.
