TO ARMS! PROTECT THE FIEFDOM!!
In the bowels of a story there sometime lies bits of incredible truth.
Anna Nicole Smith's case has made it to the Supreme Court. And I'm always interested in stories where the feds have an interest in a state case. And deep in this story is a another reason that we supposedly have a federal and not a national constitution.
"The Bush administration is siding with Smith as a technical matter, arguing that the justices should protect federal court jurisdiction in such disputes." Never mind if there was ever supposed to be federal jurisdiction here at all. Just protect it once the feds have it.
Yup, as one of my friends at CCRN said "It's good to be the king!"
