Rosanne Cash Kicks Asshat!

It seems that during his recent bid for re-election, Republican Congressman John Boehner* had developed a habit of invoking Johnny Cash's name when speaking
at campaign rallies.

Boehner's line was "Remember when Ronald Reagan was president? We had Bob Hope. We had Johnny Cash. Think about where we are today. We have got President Obama. But we have no hope and we have no cash."

Presumably, this passes for wit among Ohio Republicans, but when Rosanne heard about, she was not amused.
She was pissed off.

...and unlike so much political talk these days,
Rosanne's response was brief, clear and straight to the point. 

It seems to have had the desired effect - Boehner stopped doing it - and he'll probably go down in history not as Speaker of the House, but as the man who brought "asshat" into popular culture. 

How cool is that? I think her Dad would have been proud...

...and there's more to the story!

It seems Mr. Boehner's people drew  their inspiration from a surprising source- a song by the Dixie Chicks:

"Now they sound tired,
but they don't sound Haggard.
They got money
but they don't have Cash.


* Boehner's
use of artificial tanning products has earned him the nickname "Agent Orange" in some circles.
