Ok, this is got to be the most amazing political story! French, who are the eye sore for many conservative Americans are responsible for yet another political battle in the US. One of their guys gave birth to a family tree that was ultimately responsible for two characters – totally different in the political spectrum. Barrack Obama and Dick Cheney are eighth cousins!
Maureen Duvall’s son, Samuel married grand-daughter of Cheney’s ancestor – another Richard Cheney! Obama is related to Maureen. This fact was found out by Lynne Cheney, while doing research for the memoirs that she and Dick are planning to write.
Needless to say that this feuding French orchestrated American family is not taking its role in yet another feud – the Iraq war – lightly. While one would “bring it on”, the other would “Bring us in”.
Wonder if Cheney and Obama would ever have those.. er.. “freedom” fries together over a French Roast .. or is it Freedom Roast coffee? 🙂
