Straight from the WTF Department...

According to Lynne Cheney's new book, Blue Skies, No Fences her husband is (distantly) related to... wait for it... Barack Obama. Yup, Mrs. Cheney did extensive research on the Vice President's family tree, and the two are 8th cousins.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, Cheney and Obama are 9th cousins, while Cheney and his boss are 11th cousins.

Damn, I guess when you go back far enough we're all related.

Other revelations in Mrs. Cheney's book include:

Hillary Clinton and Kenneth Starr are 4th cousins.

Patrick Ewing and Michael J. Fox are 3rd cousins, once removed.

Rush Limbaugh plays golf with Satan.

Snoop Dog's great great grandmother once had lunch with Tipper Gore's 8th cousin.

Paul Bryce's 10th cousin dated Derek Jeter's relative in 1889.

Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen are brothers.

David Hasselhoff and Ralph Macchio had the same barber until 1987.

And I once split a cab with Kevin Bacon.

Correction, C-Rock. Snoop's distant relative SERVED Tipper lunch, not had lunch. Important correction, chief.
