    They’re hiding in Phil’s beard.

    Looks roomy.

    Pajama Boy has been outed as Ethan Krupp, an Organizing for America employee. Not only a metrosexual liberal but a Cubs fan. This just gets worse and worse…

    So his eyebrows aren’t naturally arched like that?

    The only way it could get worse: if Ethan Krupp is revealed to be an assumed name for Steve Bartman.

  6. EJHill

    And Krupp is Rachel Maddow’s little brother…

  7. Mr. Dart

    How interesting to hear people who don’t appear to even know Phil Robertson’s name or anything about him or his family discuss the ginned up kerfuffle of the day.  Wow.

  8. Hartmann von Aue

    This was one of the funniest podcasts y’all have done. Many thanks. Oh, and D.C. has a great speaking voice.

    If God proved his existence through the creation of life, he proved his goodness through the creation of Southerners.

  10. The King Prawn

    Agreed on D.C. I’d pay extra on my membership if it went to having her write at least one post per day.

  11. Cordelia

    You all admitted that you hadn’t read anything about what Mr. Robertson actually said in the GQ interview, and yet included it as a part of your show today, I assume because it’s “in the news,” but seriously, you couldn’t take five minutes out of your busy schedules to read a single article? Shame on you. And yes, I am judging you.

    Thats not right. Hes the guy on Big bang theory.

    Someone said the picture was of Ezra Klein’s visit to the Playboy Mansion.

    We are going to enjoy a Ricochet Christmas.

    • Poppin’ fresh podcasts for the ride to DC (w/ tantalizing Twitter rumors that Mark and Mollie have recorded a new “The Hemingways”).

    • Via foodydirect.com: We ordered a lunch to help out my mom: Beef on Weck from Anderson’s Frozen Custard and Key Lime Bundt from We Take The Cake.
    • And good Obama-hatin’ conversation w/ my Ricochet gifted brother and sister-in-law.

    Do you mean the Ricochet podcasters, or the twitter/facebook hand-wringers?  If the former, I think discussion of the kerfuffle itself shouldn’t necessarily require knowledge of the man’s family.  Why, I’ve even got an opinion and I’ve never once seen the program.  And yes, a friend IMed me this morning and the conversation was something like:

    “so what do you think about this Phil Robertson business?”

    “who??”

    “the Duck Dynasty guy apparently said something in support of heterosexual marriage and my facebook is going nuts.  It’s ridiculous.”

    “I imagine.  This is why I don’t have facebook!”

    Followed by a whole conversation about liberal hypocrisy.  I don’t think much more in-depth knowledge is really necessary.  Haven’t listened to the podcast, yet, but I imagine the guys have a pretty good take – they generally do.

    For what it’s worth, I watch Duck Dynasty all the time. My daughters are 9 & 11 and it’s one of the few shows we can watch as a family. And Phil is my favorite “character,” if that’s the right word.

    Did I say that? I heard Medved  read the entire chunk of the interview.

    So you haven’t listened yet to Peter and Rob on the subject they knew little to nothing about but disagree with me about their views on a show you admit you’ve never seen. 

    Got it.

    Merry Christmas!

    I was referring to Peter & Rob.  James facilitated a discussion by them in the first few minutes of the podcast. I’m sorry I wasn’t clearer in my original comment. 

    While all of this stuff was raging last night Phil was ministering to a young woman with cancer at their church in West Monroe.  It’s just odd to hear people you respect talk about Mr. Robertson as if he’s Snooki Boo Boo or someone.
