With all this talk about Cindy Sheehan's alleged cousins and who knows who else allegedly signing some letter with the usual crap - support our troops, when what they mean is, worship George Bush - it's worth noting all the Bush cousins who endorsed John Kerry.
They even created a web site, www.bushrelativesforkerry.com.
Their slogan was: 'Because blood is thicker than oil!"
''As the election approaches, we feel it is our responsibility to speak out about why we are voting for John Kerry, and to do our small part to help America heal from the sickness it has suffered since George Bush was appointed President in 2000. We invite you to read our stories, and please, don't vote for our cousin!"
They were all apparently related to Prescott Bush, George W's grandfather.
The Texas and New England sides of the families are not all that close.
''I can't describe us as particularly close to the Bush family," said one cousin.
''I've never met George W. Bush and don't particularly care to."
