Conservatives Race To Tweet Photos Of Themselves With Duck Dynasty Star

Republican lawmakers hoping to brandish their conservative credentials were lining up Tuesday night to tweet photos of themselves with Willie Robertson, the star of the A&E reality show "Duck Dynasty."

Robertson's father Phil was temporarily suspended from the show for making anti-gay remarks in a GQ article, but then allowed back after Republicans rallied behind him. Willie Robertson is attending the State of the Union address as the guest of Rep. Vance McAllister (R-La.).

Korie Robertson, Willie's wife, also is attending, compliments of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). Several conservatives posted pictures of themselves with Willie Robertson and said how honored they were to meet him.

CORRECTION: This post has been updated to reflect it was Robertson's father Phil who was suspended from the show.
