Who isn't liberal to him?

Former Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor, a conservative member of the Federalist Society who last year received a recess appointment to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, is just too liberal for Roy Moore's taste.

The former Alabama chief justice is upset because Pryor wouldn't let him offer a brief in a case about evolution warning stickers in Georgia textbooks. Moore says it must be because Pryor is "part of the problem of judicial tyranny and the erosion of our religious freedom." Pryor, who actually knows how the judicial branch is structured, says the denial came because Moore asked the 11th Circuit to overrule Supreme Court decisions, which it can't do.

A tangential question: Does anyone know when and why the media started referring to Pryor as William instead of Bill?

Since I love the tangentials: I think it's because he already looks like he's 12, and "William" might be perceived as more mature than "Bill."

Either that or the national press simply picked up his full legal name from some document or other source without knowing that he goes by "Bill" at home.

I don't think Pryor will do an overtly bad job, and Moore is just an idiot.

Bill Pryor became William Pryor among the press as a sign of respect after he pledged his soul to Satan and became a DIRTY LIBERAL!
