Johnny Cash’s Daughter to Boehner: Stop Using My Dad‘s Name You ’******’

Sherry Mowery, My Cowboy suffers no longer... 2010/11/02 16:02:51

It may be the weirdest, non-nonsensical expletive you’ve ever heard. But last night, Rosanne Cash used it to let John Boehner know how she feels about him invoking her father Johnny’s name on the campaign trail.

First, Boehner’s popular stump line, as reported by the New York Times:

At each stop he draws on nostalgia for the Republican glory days of the 1980s, by telling the same joke. “Remember when Ronald Reagan was president,” he said. “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.” It draws hoots of laughter and applause every time.

While some may laugh and applause, Rosanne Cash is fuming. She took to Twitter to let Boehner know it:

John Boehner: Stop using my dad’s name as a punchline, you ***hat

In case you’re wondering, the redacted portion is another three letter word for butt. And if you’re still having a hard time understanding the expletive (like I did), you can see it here.

As Politico’s Ben Smith said, it’s “an expletive I’ve never had to try redacting before.”

She supports moveon.org’s “Don’t Stomp On Me” Campaign


Why am I not surprised? Amazing that so many have bought the story that little miss moveon.org was some innocent that was attacked unprovoked.Too bad Roseanne Cash doesn’t have the CLASS of her father. Roseanne, your Daddy would’ve been out there campaigning for the Republicans!!! You also needs to learn the meaning of “punchline.” His name wasn’t used in the punchline of the joke.

    You obviously don't know anything about Johnny Cash. Cash hated Republicans with a passion. He hated Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. He was a crusader for racial and economic justice and a great supporter of labor. He would NOT cross a picket line to make a performance, media interview, eat at a diner or do anything else.

    Actually, Johnny Cash would not have been out for ANY candidates of the Republican Party. He very much HATED the likes of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan and would've been thoroughly disgusted by a John Boehner.
    Roseanne knows what her father would've liked or disliked. Just because she doesn't share your opinions and bigotries but may think more like her father is no reason to take a pot shot at her like that. She has more class than most of her critics will EVER have.
  • douglas.beezley 2012/11/05 20:22:22
    Somehow Rosanne must have drank the Kool-Aid. If her Dad were still around, he would straighten out her poor little head.
  • douglas.beezley 2012/11/05 20:19:24
    Everyone loved Johnny Cash! He had a Christ like effect on people. Unexplainable. He met everyone right where we are at.
  • texasred 2010/11/04 01:01:56
    Screw Roseanne Cash... Both her Dad and her Mom would have had heart failure over Obama and his Progressive agenda.

    Neither Johnny Cash's nor June Carter's genes seem to be present in this whatever it is.

    June Carter Cash is not Rosanne's mother. Vivian Dorraine Liberto Cash Distin is her mother. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

    Roseanne is the true asshat here. Boehner is being complimentary of her father
  • snipe 2010/11/02 22:37:48
    I've heard that line used by lots of people. Why is she complaining now. And besides, she has no singing talent whatsoever, only the name.

    I thought Roseanne Cash died in The Old Crackwhore's Home, years ago.

    Johnny Cash was NO Republican!!!!!

    Just like everything else you rwnj's never bother to go past the surface on anything factual.

    The songs of Johnny Cash--"the Man in Black"--were beacons of light for those who were unjustly locked up, kicked down, and knocked around. He sang from his heart for the poor, the imprisoned, and the oppressed.

    Though he was not known as an expressly political artist, Cash waded into the controversies of his times with a passion. Like the US troops in Vietnam who idolized him, he questioned the wisdom of that war. And in the mid-1960s, at the height of his success, he released an album that challenged his country's treatment of Native Americans."

    But it was his songs which really marked him as a man of the people. He took sides in his songs, and he preferred the side of those imprisoned by the law--and by poverty and hard luck.

    Johnny Cash has always been a HERO of mine for this LIBERAL ideals and songs!!!!

    Go after 'em Roseanne...for demeaniong your fathers' name.
  • tom Bronti 2010/11/02 19:25:21
    conservatives liked the man, liberals liked and idolized the criminal. Anger is all you know, just like Rosann Cash. bi-polar moonbats, good grief. wash down the meds with some fruit punch.
  • Bronti tom 2010/11/02 19:50:19
    Conservatives try and pigeon hole him into country music thats why ya'll like him. Listen to the lyrics of his songs and at least read some highlights about his life and you will see that he is LIBERAL!!!! in this beliefs.

    And if he were alive today, and living in California, he would be voting 'YES' on Prop 19. So we'll put that in our pipe and smoke it!
  • tom Bronti 2010/11/02 20:57:27
    I never said he was conservative or liberal and stay in California. If the state was to become it's own country, it would last 6 months then cry for the other 49 to bail it out.

    It appears you did no research yourself moonbat.

    By NANCY ZUCKERBROD, Associated Press Writer

    WASHINGTON - Was the man in black a Democrat or a Republican? The son of the late singer Johnny Cash, who captured the hardscrabble life of those on the margins in songs such as "Folsom Prison Blues" and "One Piece at a Time," says his dad never hinted about his party choice.

    "He wouldn't say if he had any political affiliation," said John Carter Cash.
  • tom Ryan 2010/11/02 20:56:15
    I never said he was one or the other. I as a conservative liked the man, you on the other hand, like all your fellow alinskites, loved the aura of the criminal.
  • Ryan tom 2010/11/02 21:08:51
    I'll overlook that comment, as mine was directed at the moonbat. Being a fellow conservative I'll add you to my friends list.

    Dumb comment.
  • Beer30 Ryan 2010/11/03 06:11:52
    Listen to his lyrics ----

    " I'm stuck in Folsom Prison,,,, and time keeps draaaaggin' on,,,,"
    "I turned twenty-one in prison, doing Life without parole.... ( Mama tried!)
    What's that achy bruised-all-over " I Hurt Myself" thing he did at the end of his life?
    And "One Piece at a Time" is a whimsical look at some SERIOUS employee theft.

    If I were Republican OR Democrat, I'm not really sure I'd want credit for him as a member of my party.
  • Ryan Beer30 2010/11/03 14:51:04
    LOL! Based on his record and I'm not talking on vinyl, I bet he was a Chitcago politician in another life.
  • Beer30 Ryan 2010/11/03 16:39:07
    'Chitcago' Politician?

    Nawww,,,, not even close. He was never in a league as sophisticated as theirs.
    He was, in essence, a hack hillbilly singer/songwriter who had lifelong substance dependencies with the pills, the nose candy, and ole John Barleycorn.
    He spent a fair share of his career Up The River in retribution for his sins.

    Ironic that he should trade the experience of his own felonies to serenade inmates at Folsom and San Quentin, cashing in on his image as a fellow con from the joint to score mucho big bucks on a recording deal.

    While we're at it, let's ask Roseanne what sort of homelife SHE grew up with, when Daddy was either locked up inside, on the music RoadShow tour outside, or just wasted altogether.
  • Beer30 Bronti 2010/11/03 06:17:46
    Demeaning? Read Boehner's quote again.

    He's citing Bob Hope and Johnny Cash as examples of REAL American spirit and tradition.

    Johnny Cash was a convict that got sent to jail by liberals but put back on the track to success by conservatives and his asshat daughter has the nerve to call Boehner names?

  • sabbatha 2010/11/02 16:58:35
    I guess she's offended because her Dad isn't alive to say whether or not he backs this candidate.Johnny would probably think it was funny but we will never know that for sure.
  • shenendoah 2010/11/02 16:46:10
    Get over it Rosanne. It certainly wasn't the liberal elite that made you daddy popular. It was those that cling to their Bible and guns.
