Rosanne Cash, the daughter of country musician Johnny Cash, uses her blog to tell John McCain to back off on using her fathers name to bolster the Republican presidential campaign:
It is unfair and presumptuous to use him to bolster any platform. I would ask that my father not be co-opted in this election for either side, since he is clearly not here to defend or state his own allegiance.
Naturally, this got quite some coverage in the press. On a slightly different note, I recommend getting the later albums by Johnny Cash in particular, his dark and then-wavering voice is really powerful.
