CFJ's New Ad

Ann Althouse misunderstands the point of the Committee For Justice's new ad. Its intent is not to promise "outcomes that would please social conservatives" if Judge Alito is confirmed. To the contrary, the ad drives home the importance of putting restrained judges like Alito on the Court, by pointing out the type of outcome-oriented decisions that result when Alito's critics get their way.

Update: I note that the esteemed Ramesh Ponnuru seconds the view that Ann Althouse is "misinterpreting the ad."
