    "DD flies in the face of EVERYTHING in liberal culture/" funny ALL THE "LIBERALS" above seem to enjoy the show, maybe everything is not about some holy war between "liberals and "conservatives."

    DD is about a happy, close, functional, Christian Family. Throw in the beards and guns and hunting and prayer and could-care-less about PC attitude and you have THE most popular TV entertainment out there. DD flies in the face of EVERYTHING in liberal culture - love of God , love of the 2nd amendment, love of hunting and the outdoors, and no sexual content or messed up marriages. DD is scripted but funny because people like uncle Si remind you of someone in your own family. The long hair and beards is sort of a anti-PC thing I think and really drives home the in-your-face attitude about the show which is so unusual and fresh. When was the last time you saw anything on prime time tv that centered around guns and hunting and the joy that is created when a family hunts together? This is really Utah culture or perhaps western culture that is so foreign to eastern liberals. Anyway - great show and love the DD t-shirts (I have three)!

    I don't get to live quite as redneck as this crowd, although in some ways I'm moreso. I stand up for what I believe, family, freedom, an absence of political correctness, cheap beer, and freedom from religion. The idea that we need to find ways to fit people, even the duck bunch, into the one and only 'correct' pigeon hole is anathema to the true american freedom we espouse.

    "However much elites may deride the caricature, America sure loves this real-life version." This family proves the caricature, still their fun to watch and as an atheistic, non gun supporter, progressive, I think their good people in their own right and again fun to watch. Why are they fun to watch? Because they've tapped into the Seinfeld formula of being about nothing, yet about everything, and some of the family are very entertaining.

    I would disagree pretty much with all of the politics, religion, and life advice they profess, and yes I think it's bad politics etc. typical of those clinging to guns and religion, but so what, it's a tv show.

    It is really to bad that people like the heritage foundation feel the need to turn everything into a holy war. I and many of my other "liberal" grinds watch duck dynasty because it is humerious and despite our differences in politics the people in the show seem like decent people. This is the same sad thing some semed to due to Tenow who was entertaining to watch play and again seemed like a nice guy. Not everything has to be about political agendas and some faux holy war.
