Is the 'Duck Dynasty' goose cooked? Can show go on without Phil Robertson?

As the fallout from Phil Robertson's comments on homosexuality continues to rain down, some say its time to put a fork in "Duck Dynasty," while others think the hit show has a few quacks left in it.

On Wednesday, following intense criticism from gay rights groups and others, A&E announced that the patriarch of the duck-hunting family had been placed on "indefinite hiatus" following his comments to GQ magazine.

A source close to the show tells FOX411 that even if Robertson apologized, at this point, A&E is done with him.

But can the ratings juggernaut really go on without its central character, the man who presides over the family and leads the dinner time prayers?

"All shows run their course. But this still has at least another season or two in it," the insider said. "Granted, the overall feeling of uninhibited love that this country has had for the show and brand will likely start to turn a bit."

According to our source, given that "Duck Dynasty" boasts such a big cast, losing a cast member won't prevent them from moving ahead with the popular series, even if it ends up being fashioned as more of a "spin-off." But the creative team still faces some major problems as Phil is ultimately the leader of the family and the source of many "words of wisdom" parlayed to the grandkids. He is also the founder of the multi-million dollar Duck Commander business the show features, and thus his absence is likely going to hurt.

Some think these problems – paired with Robertson’s comments -- are insurmountable.

This week Sen. Elizabeth Warren and six colleagues introduced the Equal Employment for All Act, which would make it illegal for employers to disqualify job applicants based on their credit scores. It's an admirable and important bill which deserves our support. It also gives us an opportunity to have a broader discussion about the kind of society we hope to become

Went to look at American Thinker-
At least 9th grade level vocabulary or higher
Cite sources
has complex sentence structure
follows rules for laying out an argument
no illogical jumps or connections

As far as opinion sites go this is one of the better ones. I went to one USAsince posted last night that was a mess. Author indicated citing a source but didn't include the link or the name. Had a bunch of disjointed sentences that really did not fit together nor did he try to develop an argument-one of the worse opinion pieces I have seen.

If I was to look for a site that features Odd and unreported stories- that Raw Story claims to cover (you do know there is a reason for this like the credibility of the source)-I use Yahoo and other news sources that has this feature without a political ideology.

What is ironic and disgusting is that poor white trash redneck ignorance is becoming something that is attractive somehow; it's not only Southerners as was thought before. It seems to be everywhere; even people in Massachusetts of all places, are laughingly calling themselves rednecks! One would think that being called white trash redneck hillbillies would be something anyone would want to distance oneself from.
It's sick. Read this from that idiot:
The 67-year-old journeyed from substance abuse to devotion to God to small-screen celebrity, all in the backwoods of Louisiana. According to Robertson, growing up in those Louisiana backwoods in the pre-civil rights era was not bad for black people.
“I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person," Robertson is quoted in GQ. "Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field.... They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say,‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”

Robertsons are in talks with A&E and state "we cannot imagine the show going on without Phil at the helm"

Sounds like the Robertsons are trying to withdraw from A&E

A&E will lose millions of revenues, but when you cave too early and fail to check it out first with your real viewers-you make DUMB decisions.

Can't feel sorry for A&E
