What Do Kobe Bryant, Anna Nicole Smith and Herman Cain Have in Common?

Let the celebrity lawyer wars begin.

Herman Cain's camp is trying to impeach one of the witnesses against him, Sharon Bialek, by deriding her outspoken feminist lawyer, Gloria Allred, as a sort of gold-plated ambulance chaser.

"A celebrity lawyer who specializes in generating publicity for herself and her clients," is how Cain spokesman J.D. Gordon described the LA legal maven who has, in fact, represented ex-girlfriends of Tiger Woods and Anthony Weiner, a former Spice Girl and O.J. Simpson's in-laws, among others.

But Cain has answered in kind. Check out the resume of L.Lin Wood, the Atlanta libel expert whose introduction of the embattled presidential contender at Tuesday's press conference sounded like a closing argument. My colleague Jim O'Sullivan has the details, accompanied by a gallery of mugs you seldom see in National Journal.
