Why Wait Till He’s Nominated?

The Alliance for Justice has issued a press release expressing their opposition to Doug Kmiec’s nomination to the D.C. Circuit. It seems that the Alliance for Justice is no longer satisfied with opposing actual nominees--they are now opposing potential nominees (it is rumored that the White House is considering nominating Kmiec, but he has not been nominated yet). Considering all the money they spend pouring over the writings of judicial nominees, they should perhaps think about spending a few dollars to have someone proof their press releases: the headline on the release says "Alliance for Justice Statement on Walter Kmiec" (emphasis added), rather than Douglas Kmiec.

"Considering all the money they spend pouring over the writings of judicial nominees, they should perhaps think about spending a few dollars to have someone proof their press releases...."

Speaking of proofing, what, exactly, is the Alliance for Justice pouring over all these court decisions?

Dafydd ab Hugh

Presuming that Dafydd ab Hugh is familiar with the expression "pouring over," meaning to scour or peruse in depth, and that he or she is offering a play on words, I would have to say that AFJ is pouring a simplistic knowledge of law, a lack of context, and a propensity for distortion over the opinions.
