    about how there's Bob Hope and Johnny Cash, but under Obama, there's no hope and no Cash.  Not even trying to claim Johnny Cash as a Gooper (and why should they, when they have most of the hacks who pass for country singers these days, he says while Townes Van Zandt plays).

      I love Johnny Cash, but can't the Boner tell a joke that's based in this century? What next? An Al Jolson reference?

        my real last name is not too far from Boehner (we may have even shared a common relative in the old country, though i am pale as snow and said relative in question wouldn't be biologically related to me, but rather my dad's pro-union stepfather), but that particular rhyme brings back some memories.

        I'm pushing "Asshat," in the spirit of ol' Roseanne.  Not to mention, Johnny Cash was recording great music well into this century.
