Rosanne Cash thumps John Boehner on Twitter


Yeah Rosanne!!!! Boner's getting a little too cocky. Need a good old fashioned ass whooping get him more grounded. I'll put my hair up and help you any time girl. Via Ben.

John Boehner has been invoking Johnny Cash on the stump lately as a figure of American nostalgia:

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.

Displeased: Rosanne Cash, daughter of Johnny.

She tweets, with an expletive I've never had to try redacting before: "John Boehner: Stop using my dad's name as a punchline, you ass***."

  • Good move by Rosanne, she stopped quickly...

    That old black and white photo of Johnny Cash giving the finger to the camera would go very well with that tweet.


    Erm..I don't think asshat is an expletive

    How arrogant of these people to think they can 'use' someone in an ad, especially someone who is no longer with us & thus unable to rebut. Good for you Rosanne for firing back & quickly!!

  • Love it. I heard that little sound-byte this AM and it sickened me that he was using Johnny Cash.
