I don't feel bad, nobody knows

Colby Cosh asked what biographical oddity Stalin shares with U.S. Vice-President Dick Cheney last Friday. So far, as of early Tuesday morning, he has not posted the answer. It was supposed to be posted on Sunday if nobody got it.

I've glanced at the two Wikipedia entries. No clue, but I didn't look all that hard. Both have kids who they publicly refute and who hate them back, but somehow I don't think that's the answer.

Stalin at one point studied for priesthood, but Cheney didn't (while a lot more prominant people did). Guess I'll find out when the rest of you do.

Update, 1:05pm: The answer has been posted, and turns out that the choice of Cheney should have raised mental flags over what his big news story has been this year...shooting of a friend while out hunting.
