Photos of Republican Lawmakers With That Duck Dynasty Guy

I wish someone would have told me tonight's state of the union would be so boring—wait, what's that? Oh. Fine then. Moving on ... For those of you who have no interest in reliving the excitement by reading the text of President Obama's speech, here's a few photos of Republican lawmakers posing—with varying degrees of awkwardness—with Willie Robertson, one of the stars of Duck Dynasty.

Rep. Vance McAllister, a Louisiana Republican who took office after a special election this past November, invited Robertson, making the reality TV star more or less this year's Ted Nugent. It was Robertson's father, Phil, you just might remember, who was briefly suspended from the family's A&E reality show last month after offering up racially insensitive remarks to GQ magazine, along with a rant that called homosexuality morally wrong.
