All In The Family

John Kerry and George W. Bush are reported to be distantly related. The two men running for President this year are ninth cousins, twice removed. Not only that, but they also have blood ties to Hugh Hefner. Even more interesting than the common ancestry of Bush and Kerry, though, is the fact that both men were members of Yale's secret Skull and Bones society. Given the very small size of the organization and that John Kerry is only two years Bush's senior, it is possible that they have known each other for decades. If I were a bit more paranoid, I say something funny was going on here, but for now I'll chalk it all up to coincidence.
