Fox News Attacks ‘Iraq Snobs’ For Supporting the Troops

Fox News tool John Gibson is disgusted by Anderson Cooper’s “news-guy snobbery,” because the handsome CNN anchor keeps reporting on stupid Iraq! Bravely defending the constant cable-news coverage of a fat drug-addict porno gal’s death, Gibson told his radio audience that Cooper is just trying to be a fancy snob with all this “U.S. troops killed every day” stuff, which is totally boring compared to a brain-damaged 800-pound heroin addict in awful clown make-up: Read more on Fox News Attacks ‘Iraq Snobs’ For Supporting the Troops…

‘Somebody-somebody-somebody, an actress with a TV show…’

In the chaotic and heroic media frenzy that’s greeted the death of America’s Sweetheart, Anna Nicole Smith, only one crazy anonymous emailer (not Nadine, alas, but just as tuned-in to the real story) has managed to get to the truth: Smith was killed, possibly by the Kennedys, or Nancy Pelosi, to cover up President Bush’s affair with… Michele Bachmann. Tony Blair, the Queen of England, and MSNBC are all involved too. Read the terrifying tale in its entirety, after the jump. Read more on ‘Somebody-somebody-somebody, an actress with a TV show…’…

Supreme Court Icon Anna Nicole Smith Drops Dead

Perhaps the greatest symbol of our nation’s highest court, the dope-addict floozy Anna Nicole Smith keeled over dead in a Florida hotel about an hour ago. We’ve been too upset to post, obviously — plus it took a while to come up with a possible Wonkette angle. Turns out we’ve posted dozens of items about the beloved entertainer! She was basically the American Dream in the flesh. Let’s pay our respects to “Mrs. Smith Who Came To Washington,” after the jump. Read more on Supreme Court Icon Anna Nicole Smith Drops Dead…
 

Anna Nicole Smith: One Merry Widow

This morning the Supreme Court ruled unanimously in favor of Anna Nicole Smith, the luscious ex-Playmate seeking a fair share of her late husband’s estate. We’re not terribly surprised, having predicted this outcome; but we are pleased for her. (It seems the justices were unable to resist Smith’s audacious strategy of proceeding pro se before them.) Okay, this is the paragraph where we’d block quote a key excerpt from the opinion. But we won’t do that, since it’s kinda boring. Yes, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote the opinion, but this time it’s not her fault. Despite the high-profile parties, the subject matter of the litigation — the extent of the “probate exception” to federal jurisdiction — is less-than-scintillating. We’ll spare you the details, and you can thank us later. (If you’d like some actual legal analysis of the decision, check out SCOTUSblog, among many other fine blawgs.) With a widely expected outcome and a soporific, technical legal issue, we don’t have much to say. Two quick observations about the case appear after the jump.
