Related to Obama?

My father, who spends crazy amounts of time working on genealogy, stumbled across this site, which seems to indicate that Senator Obama and I are distant cousins (down in the 6 thousands or 7 thousands lines). Of course, my husband and I are also distant cousins (through the very same original settler), and I’m likely related to each and every reader of this blog in some crazy fashion.

Geez, now that he’s family, that means I can get really ticked off at him, right?
