1. milder form of asshole. comes from old online forums. all swearwords, including any combination of "ass" and "hole" was considered vulgar and would get your message censored and possibly flagged, but "ass" was just fine. so ppl used "ass hat" cuz everyone knew what you were referring to plus you avoided censorship and web filters.

2. ppl now use it to refer to brownnosers or bull-headed douchbag asshole bosses.
