The Duck Dynasty family welcomed former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to Louisiana Saturday while Palin was on a book tour for her best-selling blockbuster book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas.
"Happy, happy, happy!" Palin, who has often commented that her kids think the Duck Dynasty family is cooler than she is, wrote on her Facebook page. "Thanks to the Robertson family and the Duck Commander team for welcoming us to West Monroe, LA!"
Palin, who met with Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson at the NRA convention this year and urged the GOP to embrace life like the Duck Dynasty star, took a photo with members of the family and the Duck Commanders, including star Duck Commander Phil Robertson. Members of the Robertson family were holding copies of Palin's book, which highlights American exceptionalism and embraces the role of God and faith in society. Those themes have helped make Duck Dynasty one of the most popular television shows in history. Bernie Quigley, a columnist for The Hill, wrote this year that Palin was the politician who most resonates with Duck Dynasty nation.
