NEW ORLEANS — Louisiana's lieutenant governor says the "Duck Dynasty" reality TV show is important to state tourism — and he could help connect the Robertson family with new producers if they cannot reach agreement with the A&E network.

That's just sad. A fake reality TV show is bolstering tourism? The Robertson's aren't even real rednecks (Phil likely is but that's about it). Just do some googling and you will find photos of the other men and their families from before the show perfectly clean shaving and dressed like J Crew models. Complete and total rich 'yuppies'. They grew out their beards and are playing the redneck part to make money. All of the people who follow this show religiously are just totally being duped (out of their time and most of all MONEY). So sad this is what America has become.

Funny show. I believe the show is successful because it has a family with traditional values. They work, play and pray together. A winning combination. The fact that there's been such a huge backlash against A&E clearly shows Americans who believe in traditional values and traditional families aren't the minority. Call them Bible thumpers if you will. But they didn't back down or apologize for the statements in GQ even when large amounts of money were at stake. Good for them.

They could jump directly to an internet based show where they wouldn't have to sit out a year. Cracker Barrel has reversed course and Wal-Mart is staying out of the issue. Looks like A&E is about to lose their 100 million dollar money making machine thanks to GLAAD. The American people are speaking up and the progressive liberals can't believe what they are saying.

"Americans who believe in traditional values and traditional families aren't the minority." ---- So would that be a traditional family before or after interracial marriage was legalized? I'm also now sure how Phil's comments that black people were more 'jolly' before Civil Rights and during Jim Crowe laws count as a 'traditional value'.

Louisianna must consider these dudes to be an endangered species. I am still trying to determine what species that they really are. If these people represent mainstream America, I do not belong in this country. This country is in deep trouble making them some kind of "poster boys". Not American--only a virtual bunch of freaks.

Traditional marriage is between a man and a woman, a male and female regardless of skin color. Pretty simple.

crownship - That would be before and after. Traditional marriage is between a man and a woman, a male and female regardless of skin color. Pretty simple. ---------- And yet the right used the religion argument as recently as 20 years ago to try and deny it as well.
