1. There is a fellow that says Kerry is really Irish from way back - I think
he looks more like Leno!????

2. By my calculation they are 9th cousins twice removed.
More simply, Kerry is a 9th cousin to Dubya's grandfather and Bush would be an 11th cousin to Kerry's grandkids. Isn't that peachy ?

3. Eh...
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 09:37 PM by Spider Jerusalem
if you go back far enough, everyone is related....and when it comes to people of European descent, "far enough" is 1200 years or less (in other words, recently enough for a documented ancestry, in many cases). I'm apparently related to both Bush and Kerry, as well as Albert Schweitzer, Hermann Goering, Himphrey Bogart, and something like 24 Presidents....distantly related, of course, but related nonetheless. Kind of leads me to the conclusion that part of the reason humanity is so fucked up is because we're all catastrophically inbred...heh.

4. Since according to bible-fans all of us are descendants of Adam and
Eve, both Kerry and Bush are our relatives. As they say, you can select your friends but not your relatives.

6. Either way, there are probably what? A couple thousand distant cousins?
a couple thousand out of 300 million isn't that bad.

5. I also heard today that there is a -
distant family relationship between Kerry and Britney Spears.
