The Patterico Pontifications Blog has a post today about Judge Alex Kozinski, the Chief Judge for the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge Kozinski has been a prolific and relatively public conservative judge. I remember thinking it was pretty cool when I heard that he closed one important opinion with the line: “The parties are advised to chill.”
Anyway, apparently Judge Kozinski had gone Eliot Spitzer on us. He has website filled with a lot of pornographic images, photos of transsexuals, naked women on all fours painted to look like cows, people fooling around with barnyard animals, and lots of other images that I really don’t feel like describing. Let’s just say the guy is twisted and leave it at that.
To this, I say creepy, but who really cares? But he also had a picture on his website of what looks like a child giving oral sex to a priest. The Patterico Pontifications Blog provides a picture that I would have done just fine without seeing.
How many ways is this sick and twisted? As a father of three children and a Catholic, it would be really hard to come up with a more offensive image.
No one will impeach him, but should this guy really be a chief judge of a federal circuit court? If I get a vote, I vote no.
