The state of our union is … Faith. Family. Ducks. Joining victims of the Boston bombing, gay NBA-er Jason Collins, and a slew of minimum-wage workers at tonight’s State of the Union address is reality star Willie “Boss Hog” Robertson of the Duck Dynasty clan. (For coastal elites: Not the bigot — his son.) Blame Louisiana Representative Vance McAllister, who is brandishing his political prop with pride. “I am proud to have my close friend, constituent and small business owner, Willie Robertson, attend tonight’s State of the Union Address as my special guest,” said the Republican in a statement. “I look forward to the two of us representing the Fifth District in D.C. this evening and bringing some diversity to our nation’s capitol.” Because what that room really needs is more angry white men.
