WWW: Cheney is related to Obama

In this edition of Weird World Wednesday, I submit to you this excerpt from this Washingtom Post story:
Vice President Cheney is related to Sen. Barack Obama.

At least that was the stunning announcement made yesterday by Lynne Cheney, who said that the very white vice president from Wyoming is in fact the eighth cousin of Obama, the Senate's only African American member...

Obama, whose mother was white, did not immediately comment on the revelation. But his campaign made light of the tie, without confirming it. "Obviously, Dick Cheney is the black sheep of the family," Obama spokesman Bill Burton said.
I am not sure if the quote is attributed directly to Senator Obama but it did bring a smile to my face this morning J
