All Asshat and No Cattle?

All Asshat and No Cattle?

Republican Congressman John Boehner got heavy use out of a Republican gag recently:

“Remember when Ronald Reagan was president? We had Bob Hope. We had Johnny Cash. Think about where we are today. We’ ve got President Obama, but we have no hope and we have no cash.”

It’s almost funny the first time, but not to the daughter of Johnny Cash, singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash. She shared her outrage with a few hundred thousand close friends via Twitter:

 “John Boehner: Stop using my dad’s name as a punchline, you asshat.”

 Ms. Cash later expressed regret. Not for writing that, but for posting it on Twitter.
