Inbred politics

So, we started this country of The United States of America to free ourselves from the monarchical tyranny of England, right? Well, it didn't work.

I seems that our two Democratic candidates are practically in-laws. Obama is a ninth cousin to actor Brad Pitt, while Clinton is a ninth cousin (twice removed) to Pitt's girlfriend, Angelina Jolie. Clinton is also related to Madonna, Celine Dion and Alanis Morissette. In addition, she claims Jack Kerouac and Camilla Parker-Bowles (Princess Di's replacement) as distant relatives. So, if elected, There will be blood ties between the American Presidency and the English Throne.

Obama can call no less than six U.S. presidents his cousins, including both Bushs, Gerald Ford, Lyndon Johnson, Harry S. Truman and James Madison. He is also cousin to V.P. Dick Cheney (Does that make Bush and Cheney related? And does it makes Cheney's selection for the V.P. spot nepotism?), Winston Churchill, and Robert E. Lee (I'll let Obama unpack that baggage).

McCain even gets into the familial action, as a sixth cousin of Laura Bush.

Take it as you will, but I find this very suspicious. Can anyone say Illuminati?
