Obama, Cheney…RELATED?!

Wuzzup cuz? The two are distant cousins says the vice president’s wife.

Guess who’s coming to dinner…

How the fuck did that happen?!

According to a Reuters news story, Lynne Cheney, said she discovered that her husband of 43 years is eighth cousins with the senator from Illinois.

In an interview on MSNBC she said it was “an amazing American story that one ancestor…could be responsible down the family line for lives that have taken such different and varied paths.” Translation: “how did the oppressed get in bed with the oppressor?”

Apparently, the great linking ancestor was a one Mareen Devall, who, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, was a 17th century immigrant from (where else but) France. Mrs. Cheney said she discovered the link through family research for her new book, “Blue Skies, No Fences” which I will no doubt be not reading.

Looks like this is definitely going to be a tough challenge to spin it in a favorable direction for the Obama camp. But on the flip side, it just goes to validate one important American value…we’re just one big happy family here in the United States of America.
