Lt. Gov Says He'll Go to Bat for Duck Dynasty


The gov'nah weighed in on the flap over Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson's anti-gay comments earlier this week. On Saturday, it was the lieutenant governor who heard the Duck Commander's call. After north Louisiana's Robertson family indicated that the hit reality show's future was in jeopardy as a result of Phil Robertson's suspension, Jay Dardenne offered to use his clout to keep them on the air.


Duck Dy-Nasty: A&E Suspends Phil Robertson Over Antigay Remarks, Jindal Weighs In


With campaign commercials and events, members of the North Louisiana family who star in A&E's Duck Dynasty haven't shied away from politics. Now, the pols -- including the governor -- are weighing in on their behalf. Phil Robertson was suspended from the show over this week over homophobic remarks. But Gov. Bobby Jindal leapt to the elder Duck Commander's defense Thursday, sounding the call of the First Amendment.


Denzel Washington Well-Suited to R-Bar


by Emma Boyce

Michael Hainey’s interview with Denzel Washington in the current issue of GQ magazine touches on everything from acting to his spiritual roots growing up with an estranged preacher father to Obama’s presidency. There's also a little local lagniappe in this edition of the men's style magazine, and it doesn't involve Alan Richman.


Buddy Gets a Bite


Amid all the talk of going to the moon, self-deporting and candidates named Romney and Gingrich, coverage of the Republican presidential campaign has been bereft of Buddy. But amid all his complaints that he can't get a space on the debate stage, Roemer will be happy to note that he got a lengthy Internet profile full of requisite snark in GQ today. Writer Marin Cogan catches up with the former La. gov before the Florida primary, and calls Roemer "Pro-Life, Anti-Big Money, Pro-Awesome." Read it here.


Rappers Love Saints


San Francisco's mayor has ensured the lights will be on at Candlestick Park, so now all that's left in preparation for tomorrow's playoff game is for rappers to pick the score. Following in the footsteps of (Packers fan) Lil Wayne's short-lived football column, publications of purported repute are now calling on the nimble-mouthed spitters to predict NFL playoff scores. Over at Billboard, N.O. native and Cash Money records founder Birdman represents for the Saints against San Francisco rapper Asher Roth. 


Alan Richman Gets 'Treme' Sazz From Anthony Bourdain


When TV's Janette Desautel clobbered real-life GQ food critic Alan Richman with a sazerac on Treme last night, it might have seemed yet another moment in which series producers were trying to offer New Orleanians some catharsis. And it did. That article still stings, Richman! But it might not have been written only with us in mind.
