Happy Happy! Duck Dynasty Guns Down American Idol
I'm not a regular viewer but this show has its moments. Moments that must drive liberals crazy. Not only do the Robertsons like to shoot and hunt, they like blowing things up, such a pick up truck that had outlived it usefulness. Worse yet the family is unabashedly Christian with each episode ending with the entire extended family gathered around a huge table while Phil, the family patriarch, thanks God "for another day on this earth." The season finale drew a record 9.6 million viewers during its one-hour episode and 5.5 million adults 18-49 besting American Idol. I'm sure they are happy happy and these are the people that Senator Mary Landrieu must keep happy if she wants to keep her grip.
Something you may not have known. From Phil Robertson's Wikipedia entry:
" He played college football at Louisiana Tech University, starting ahead of Hall-of-Famer Terry Bradshaw, and was drafted by the NFL after his junior year. He turned it down and quit football because it interfered with duck season, and he was not interested in having "large, violent… men chasing me trying to stomp me in the dirt".
