A cheap-shot headline, but it’s still a laugh-out-loud story. Anna Nicole Smith is getting some help from the Bushies in her fight to claim millions from the estate of the corpse she married, J. Howard Marshall II. I particularly like this portion of the article — my emphasis. (CNN):

The administration’s top Supreme Court lawyer filed arguments on Smith’s behalf and wants to take part when the case is argued before the justices.

Like Marshall, President Bush was a Texas oil man. Both attended Yale. Both held government positions in Washington. There are differences. Marshall had a penchant for strippers, and the court record before the justices is one of poverty, greed, sex and family rivalry.

…The issue before the high court is one only lawyers would love: when may federal courts hear claims that involve state probate proceedings. Smith lost in Texas state courts, which found that E. Pierce Marshall was the sole heir to his father’s estate.
