    Just learned that thru my paternal grandmother's family, the Terrells in Colonial Virginia, I'm distantly related to Barack Obama and Rush Limbaugh - distant cousins of each other. And Sarah Palin is an Obama cousin --  I'm laughing delightedly about political opposites combined in a family. And isn't Obama related  distantly to both Bush and Cheney? Can you imagine the Thanksgiving dinner table with them/us all?

    Anyone else here related to the Terrells in old Virginia? The family has a web community that I need to review again...

    Have a good day, all.

        Then by the process of deduction, those who frequent the religion and political forums are all related.

        That's hilarious. And deserving. wink

      Just what I was saying to someone on FaceBook. Human? Related. Some closer than others, no doubt.

    I'll need some hard facts before I believe any of this maudlin hyperhumane mumbo jumbo!

    Obama is undoubtedly a repitilian from outer space, one needn't look further than the eyes and his secret bilderberg gatherings.

    Rush? Clearly the anti-christ, sent on this good earth to whip humanity into a collective self-righteous frenzy.

      smile  A group of friends once made a scrapbook for me of alien relatives. Does that count??

      "Godzilla and the Anti-Christ" - a good graphic novel title.

        I can see it now Rush saying "Will somebody please pass the turkey" and Obama saying -"I thought you were the turkey!"

        Sarah  saying-"Nice gibblits"

        You saying - Could someone please pass the sweet potato pie?"
