I’ve always thought it’s unfair to attribute opinions to dead people that they never expressed when they were alive.
That happened last night when some country singer named John Rich said this at a CONCERT and rally for John McCain in Florida
“I’m sure Johnnny Cash would have been a John McCain supporter if he was still around.”
There was little or nothing in Johnny Cash’s career to suggest that Rich is correct. Indeed, quite the opposite would seem to be the case.
Cash criticized the Vietnam War, CHAMPIONED the rights of Native Americans, supported Jimmy Carter’s presidential candidacies in 1976 and 1980, and, shortly before he died, asked his daughter Rosanne to tell her concert audiences of his opposition to the war in Iraq.
Johnny Cash would have supported John McCain? Not likely.
Incidentally, John Rich’s singing partner, Kenny Alphin, has endorsed Barack Obama. I guess we know who’s the brains of that outfit.
