Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson to attend tonight’s #SOTU (UPDATED)

Willie Robertson
Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson: Livening up what is otherwise sure to be one dull, frustrating, too-long speech.

LOL. I love it. From Rep. Vance McAllister’s (R – LA-05) Twitter page:

CNN provides context:

Now ‘Duck Dynasty’ star Willie Robertson will attend Tuesday night’s State of the Union address as a guest of Rep. Vance McAllister. Robertson campaigned for McAllister, the newly elected congressman from Louisiana, last fall.

Robertson himself was called on by some in the GOP to run for the seat, but he backed his friend, McAllister, instead. McAllister won the special election in November for Louisiana’s 5th Congressional district, a race that pitted two Republicans against each other.

In a press release, McAllister said he looks forward to “bringing some diversity to our nation’s capitol” Tuesday night with the attendance of his bearded guest.


A big question for Tuesday night’s State of the Union address is whether Robertson will sport his trademark stars-and-stripes bandana. He’s worn it on red carpet events in the past, but will it fly in the more-formal House chamber?

And Sean Hannity will be in attendance as a guest of Rep. Louis Gohmert (R – TX-01):

Well, at least things won’t be a total bore now. ;)

The President’s SOTU will be broadcast live tonight at 9pm on the “big three” networks and news networks. You can also catch it online via CSPAN. The Wall Street Journal has excerpts.
