Riddle Me This: How Far Can An Apple Fall From Its Family Tree?

A curious group of genealogists have traced the lineage of the current U.S. Presidential hopefuls. Headlines blared that Barack Obama is a distant cousin to Brad Pitt, and Hillary Clinton is distant kin to actress Angelina Jolie. Many journalists and bloggers chuckled at the irony. However, the irony doesn't stop there.

According to the New England Historic Genealogical Society, Barack Obama is related to current President George W. Bush, and 5 former U.S. Presidents. How's that for irony?

Barack Obama and current Vice President Dick Cheney, have also previously publicly discussed the alleged lineage that they share. [PLEASE SEE THE VIDEOS POSTED BELOW.]

NOTE TO MR. OBAMA: If you do happen to get an invite to The Cheney Family Reunion, and after everyone's bellies are filled and the dishes are done- if Cousin Dick happens to invite you to a post-dinner hunting round-up in the wooded backyard area- emphatically say, "No!"
