So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Friday December 20, 2013.

The suspension/hiatus/firing of Phil Robertson is not going over well with the shows fans, and the patriarch of the Robertson family is getting some big name support too. Sarah Palin stands for free speech! Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal wasn’t happy either. Ted Cruz loves Duck Dynasty and can’t understand why Robertson isn’t allowed to hold his beliefs. Even some in the gay community don’t understand why Phil is being punished for his religious beliefs… The brilliant (yet liberal) gay thinker Camille Paglia thinks the attack on Duck Dynasty is part of a fascist PC culture.

Get this. Russian despot, I mean President, Vladimir Putin is jealous of President Obama because he can spy on Americans with the NSA… and get away with it! BURN. Shouldn’t this news make us all a little sad?
