It may not have been Bill O’Neill’s purpose to boast about his sexual conquests, but that’s the way it comes out in a rather silly Facebook post that he has now pulled, even though it remains archived in numerous tweets.

O’Neill, a justice on the Ohio Supreme Court, was attempting to make a point about what he perceives to be the wrongheadedness of the “dogs of war” (a phrase he seems to like judging from the number of times he uses it on Facebook) that are now “calling for the head of Senator Al Franken.”

Confessing that he has done the nasty with 50 women over as many years must have seemed like a good idea last night at half past seven. Why he chose to categorize them as “very attractive” and used gorgeous and drop dead gorgeous to describe a couple is a mystery, but the effect is one of a college freshman at a mixer trying to impress his buddies with his mostly invented sexual prowess.

Judge for yourself:


What O’Neill is missing of course is that the many women he claims to have “made passionate love” with were presumably willing partners, whereas Franken’s crass groping of Leeann Tweeden (which he maintains was “a joke”) was anything but consensual: The woman was asleep at the time.

It’s unlikely that the judge did much good for Franken, who deserves to be judged harshly, but more importantly, his post could very well derail his own election chances.
