Right-winger is making a claim that Bush and Kerry are cousins.
If so, it just would be interesting how far removed they are. Anyone have information?

(BTW, I blasted the right-winger so bad, that he felt it was prudent to change the subject. He lost his cool first when I told him that 9/11 wouldn't have happened under Clinton's watch. Then I gave him my rationale that it was my conclusion based on what I heard from the 9/11 Commission hearings. He said well you shouldn't be listening to that liberal media. And I yelled back, what liberal media? These were the ACTUAL hearings. I saw it all unedited and until you do too, maybe you should stop trying to debate me on the issues!)

4. Found it. They're ninth cousins, twice removed. Whatever that means.

8. I told him as long as they were not first cousins, I was fine with it.

He also mocked Kerry for using the JFK moniker and illiciting images of President Kennedy. I told him maybe it was to offset the criticism that he was just another Massachussets Liberal.

9. That's like me saying the Roosevelts are my cousins
Because I descend from the same Mayflower passenger that they do (Richard Warren, who had a bunch of healthy daughters and thus, the most descendents of any of the Mayflower passengers).

11. FDR and Elenore were 5th cousins once removed
In fact, her maiden name was Roosevelt.
