None Dare Call It Frivolous
Priorities, yo. They used to count for something in these parts. Yet with all the trouble in the world, it's hard to understand why on earth the White House is dispatching U.S. Solicitor General Paul D. Clement to argue before the Supreme Court on behalf of famed anthropomorphic-fugue-state-with-tits Anna Nicole Smith in her seemingly interminable quest to take home dead tycoon J. Howard Marshall's millions.
Surely the administration realizes that participating in this oddball legal venture makes it so they can never, ever, ever, ever, ever argue that citizens are getting killed economically by frivolous lawsuits. Wait. Forever ever? Forever ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever? Yes. That much forever.
CNN's Law Center has no compelling answers for why assisting this case is in the national interest. The central issue, "when may federal courts hear claims that involve state probate proceedings", is deemed a case "only a lawyer would love." That's not fair, however. This case is also beloved by anyone passionate about drug-addled skanks.— DCEIVER
