Now this, THIS is a mindfuck. Is this ironic, or “ironic?”

Distant? Yes. But who cares?! Barack Obama, charismatic youngster and savior of American politics ™, could be related to the bitter, brittle Dick Cheney. My list of potential Cheney relatives starts with Elizabeth Báthory and ends with Celine Dion, with Obama nowhere in between.

There’s no sign of a family reunion planned, but U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama are distant cousins.

So says the vice president’s wife, Lynne Cheney, who said she discovered that her husband of 43 years is eighth cousins with the senator from Illinois.

Where the hell is Cheney anyway?  Has anyone seen him recently?
