  •  I saw a DD xmas CD at Whole Foods yesterday (4+ / 0-)

    DD products seem to be everyone, and sites like dkos help to continue raising the popularity and visibility of that crap show

      Over the past week or so, Daily Kos has been feeding the Robertson money machine better than Time Warner or TMZ.

      Duck Dynasty is apparently December's shiny object.

      It will not get easier before it gets harder. But the harder it gets, the easier it will be.

        Over the past several days I've noticed that between 2 and 4 of the diaries on the rec list have been about DD. Ridiculous. Last week I never knew who Phil Robertson was, and I wish i didn't. All I can say is that the Robertsons and A&E are laughing all the way to the bank.

          until I read about it here. A&E isn't on my Dish Network Channel Lineup. Heck, I'm almost tempted to buy the DVD from Amazon to find out what this is about. The reviews on Amazon suggest it's a modern day version of the Beverley Hillbillies.

      Where I live, I can't go to any store without seeing products for it, and several college students here wear the merchandise. Just because it has now penetrated the bubble you live in does not mean it is now somehow more popular. Knowing about something does not equate to a rise in popularity, particularly when most of the people who have recently found out about the show abhor it.

      •  just cuz I didn't know about a crap reality show (0+ / 0-)

        on a third-rate cable network does not mean I live in a bubble.

        •  Its more than just a show (0+ / 0-)

          I have never seen a single episode or even knew until this scandal hit what channel it is on. But the merchandise is all over the place. You would have to avoid a lot of stores to remain ignorant of it. Stores that the majority of Americans shop in. You would also have to not be near any of the millions of Americans who wear the merchandise. And don't kid yourself. We all live in a bubble.

      that by criticizing GOPers by name here, we're helping them them get elected.
