Too bad for John G. Roberts

According to People Magazine, the Supreme Court (uh...yes...the highest court in the land) announced on Tuesday that it would hear Anna Nicole Smith's appeal in the case of her dead husband's estate in January. (You'd think that would be the punchline, wouldn't you?!)

This is a timely announcement, as John G. Roberts' Supreme Court nomination is scheduled to go in front of the entire U.S. Senate on September 29. I'll bet he was hoping to avoid having this party photo of he and Ms. Smith surface prior to his confirmation.

In a related story, George W. Bush announced Monday that Sugar Pie is his official nominee to replace William Rehnquist. The Senate Judicial Committee will begin confirmation hearings later this month.
