Bum, Ass, or Stupid?

Etymologically speaking, which came first, "bum" or "ass?" Which is a derivative of which? The words are closely related. "Bum" refers to one's hindquarters, "butt" if you will, but can also be "bum", as in "vagrant" or "scoundrel." "Ass" is the shortened version of "Jackass", a dumb donkey.

B. Hussein O-bum-a is all of the above. If nothing else confirms this, then the following articles are a clincher...

The wandering eye catching the "bum".

Again treating our allies like the enemy.
