Who'd a Thunk It!!!!!!!

Obama on left; Cheney on right. Photo: The China Daily

The Snay blogged it before me; the BBC reported it before he blogged it. I can hardly believe it. But….

Lynne Cheney said she had discovered while doing family research for a new book that her husband and the Illinois senator (Barack Obama) were eighth cousins. ~ BBC, Cheney, Obama 'distant cousins'


If true, I’ll bet that old right-wing Dick is shitting in his $800.00 pants!

Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, the New York Post reports that George W. Bush and Obama are 10th cousins once removed, related through a 17th century Massachusetts couple, Samuel Hinckley and Sarah Soole.

I wonder how President Dubya responded to the news.

This is more laughs than my Monday jokes!

  1. The Pres and VP related to the Dem who is 180 degrees from their positions? Hilarious!

  4. If they were smart they should start campaigning for him. That would be the kiss of death for sure for poor Obama for sure. Why do I get the feeling that if we go back far enough I am even related to you? Something sounds a little fishy here. Too funny for sure.

  5. Oh and sorry about the comment. I have become so cynical about Government lately.

  6. Between his lesbian daughter and now a presidential hopeful who is a democrat, I think Cheney is red in the face. He must want to kill his wife for releasing this information...and we all know what a good shot Cheney is!

  7. The world is SO small these days that we must all be related in some manner.
    Such a shame. There are so many people I don't want to be related to!

  10. Well, considering that the Christian belief is that we all descended from Adam & Eve, does that not make us ALL related, to some degree? LOL ;)

  18. I just adore being present when instant karma fairies bestow rightful goodies on miscreants.

    Just. love. it.

    Thanks for increasing the knowledge base of that which undoubtedly exacerbates Cheney's angst factor. May his immune system finish what has surely begun.

    Auuummmmm.
