You're not being contrary, you're suggesting another tack. I would
absolutely agree with you that it's a fine idea to volunteer to look at
the doc AFTER the lawyers are done with a draft. Like you, I've found
typos and suggested ideas that the lawyer didn't think about. You are
very correct that this can be a good thing, and it may be a good way to
soften the blow to the *very dumb* manager.

I don't agree that refusing a ridiculous task for which you are
dangerously unqualified is stomping your feet. What on earth is so wrong
about saying NO now and again? You don't have to be a brat about it, of
course, but you shouldn't be afraid to say it.

Just my thoughts.
