He probably just meant that we're all brothers and sisters in this great land of ours

Dick Cheney wins over the hearts of West Virginians with an incest joke:

Talking about his family roots and how he's distantly related to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, the vice president noted that he had Cheneys on both sides of his family.

"And we don't even live in West Virginia," Cheney quipped.

"You can say those things when you're not running for re-election."

He apologized, of course, after people got offended, but I think the thing he should have said was, "No, no, you don't understand, I think everyone in the country is a stupid yokel. You're just the ones I happened to be talking to."
