The author seems to imply that the Bush 43 administrations were frustrated with ABA nominations because they were not transparently derived, but it fails to mention who they turned to exclusively for their nominations -- The Federalist Society, an ultra-conservative legal society largely funded by the Koch brothers and their foundations. It also neglects to mention why -- because the FS nominees were seen as more ideologically "correct" than the ABA nominees. They have been predictably productive of their sponsors' motivations - they delivered Citizens United, and the New Second Amendment cases, and many more "surprises" to come.
