Obama Picks Porn Lawyer David Ogden for Deputy Attorney General

Chairman Zero isn't getting any better at picking people for high-level positions. His choice to serve as deputy attorney general under skeevy pro-terrorist lowlife Eric Holder is moonbat lawyer David Ogden.

In the 2005 case Roper v. Simmons, Ogden alarmingly argued that the USA must abide by a death penalty treaty that we never signed, because otherwise we would be flouting international norms. The idea that the demented laws and treaties favored by decadent Euroweenies ought to hold weight in American courts is taken quite seriously on the left's outer fringe, as a means of circumnavigating the will of voters.

Like most moonbats, Ogden is a big fan of abortion. Here's what he has to say about the psychological effects killing her own child has on any woman who hasn't totally cauterized her conscience:

[I]t is grossly misleading to tell a woman that abortion imposes possible detrimental psychological effects when the risks are negligible in most cases, when the evidence shows that she is more likely to experience feelings of relief and happiness, and when child-birth and child-rearing or adoption may pose concomitant (if not greater) risks or adverse psychological effects.

In addition to advancing mental health (according to Ogden), abortion is highly convenient in a society so degenerate that children are exposed to bums fumbling in their stained and malodorous trousers as they gawk at online pornography — a state of affairs Ogden has defended by fighting the use of Internet filters in public libraries. He has lawyered for Playboy, Penthouse, the largest distributor of hard-core porno movies, and even the ACLU.

Ogden definitely gets Chairman Zero's Big Government approach. He has sued the government to force taxpayers to finance a Braille version of Playboy. It's unclear whether this included scratch-and-sniff technology.

An all-purpose warrior on behalf of moonbat decadence, Ogden has also fought to homosexualize the military and "has urged courts to treat traditional definitions of marriage as a social prejudice."

They might want to change the name to the Department of Social Justice.

Rumors that Ogden has filmed himself being spanked by Janet Reno could not be confirmed.
