Revealing the Obama Cover-Up?

Lynne Cheney revealed on national television today that Dick Cheney is an eighth cousin of Barack Obama. Ms. Cheney had a predictably gushy characterization of the connection.
"Think about this," Mrs. Cheney said. "This is such an amazing American story that one ancestor, a man that came to Maryland, could be responsible down the family line for lives that have taken such different and varied paths as Dick's and Barack Obama's."

It must be a real embarrassment for the Obama family to find out that it's related to someone who has committed a wide variety of crimes against humanity, worked relentlessly to substitute an imperial presidency for the basic framework of American government, and was the key figure in the campaign of deception that led to the invasion of Iraq.

That's even more embarrassing than Al Sharpton discovering that he was related to Strom Thurmond.

In fact, being related, even distantly, to Cheney is such an embarrassment that one has to wonder if Obama himself hasn't covering up the connection out of shame.

Maybe Michelle Malkin can investigate.

P. S. And no, I'm not related to Ann Coulter. I'll deny it to my dying day.

YUCK!! Obama has my deepest sympathy. I'd sooner have learned that I was a descendent of Atilla the Hun. At least Atilla made no secret of his crimes against humanity.
