Jan 29, 2014 Full story: KVOR-AM Colorado Springs 18

This year's State of the Union address is gearing up to rival the spectacle created by the White House Correspondents Dinner, with members of Congress competing to bring notable guests to the Capitol, transforming the building for one night into another D.C. national petting zoo.

I think it's hilarious that the Robertson family photos came out showing how they looked before they had a TV show. These guys are laughing at their fans.

So what? If it makes them rich, and happy what difference does it make? At least no one died in a terrorist attack from their decisions.

How could I be played. I could care less if they are bearded or clean shaven. It is you who have no ideas on how to finance yourself without government help that are played. At least these people are on their own. BTW guess who else was at Obama's SOTU speech? Hannity. He was also invited by a Congressman.

It's funny that a month ago the teahadists were all upset about the "elites" picking on a simple regular guy who was just expressing his views about how nice life was under Jim Crowe. Then they find out their regular guy is a country club preppy who would probably call the police if any of them tried to approach him without cash in their hands.

Just like Obama voters. This is what happens when you let your TV raise your kids. Their entire view of the world is through the TV that substituted for their parent so when the media says it is true they just accept it. They watch “reality” shows and think that that is real life. It is amazing how many people today think the Daily Show and MSNBC are actual news.

Today's conservatives(cough) have fux and rusty limbot to thank for being laughable.

He wasn't always a Country Club preppy. Maybe if some of you would get off your lazy butts, work hard in school, use your head to produce something no one else ever thought of, you could be rich too, and not so jealous of those who do just that. Of all the dumb reasons you have for making fun of Phil, that he is rich, and successful is about the dumbest. The Robertsons are the example of the real American dream, it is not jumping the border like the Democrats told you.,

Nobody is questioning their work ethic or net worth, but they were preppies until a TV show came along. Then they let their hair and beards grow and started wearing camo. That's all well and fine, but it is fundamentally dishonest to market themselves as "real" people and bilk their fans into buying their licensed merchandise. Most of the fans are much less prosperous.

These hero's of "regular" people are just charlatans wearing costumes.

So what? Is it really your place to decide how they should live their lives? You people assume you are way more important then you are, and maybe you need to get a life. You just look silly trying to discredit someone else's.

When you watch T V you do it to be entertained. It isn't a life changer.

I could not care less how they live their lives, I was just pointing out that the hero's you seem to embrace are not nearly what you think they are.

That is a common thread on the right wing though. You guys get lead around by phonies all of the time and seem to be the only ones who don't see through it.. A good example is Hannity showing up at the speech. You seemed to think this was somehow a good thing, but no real journalist would ever accept an invitation to the speech. It's that whole ethics thing. Fortunately that does not effect Sean. I bet you thought he was a real journalist too.

By the way, now you are suggesting that Duck Dynasty is simply entertainment with no significance at all. I agree with that wholeheartedly, but I am having a hard time trying to figure out your previous posts where you suggested anybody that did not enjoy their program was a deadbeat welfare cheat. I guess you are evolving in your interpretation of the cultural importance of the show.

We choose our hero's differently then Democrats. Our hero's have traditional values, respect for education, hard work, religious freedom, and we don't idolize celebrity. Duck Dynasty appeals to people for many reasons, not the least of which is that there are no sexually challenged, or illegal alien makes good characters. We can find them on free T V. I know, America is made up of many kinds of people, and that is why we have choices. Liberals make their choice and want to make choices for others as well. I really could care less what you watch on TV. I do like to watch family oriented themes, watch people not afraid to use the word God, and pray at dinner. If that offends Democrats, oh well that is their problem, not mine.

Traditional values? Like wearing disguises to dupe rubes.
