Zach Dasher, nephew of Phil and Silas "Uncle Si" Robertson, of the highly politicized Duck Dynasty flock, announced his candidacy today for the Louisiana congressional seat to be vacated by Vance McAlister, who was caught on camera making out with a woman who was not his wife. It's a circling back of sorts: McAlister's other big moment of celebrity was when Duck Dynasty son Willie endorsed him for the same seat.
Dasher, 36 and a pharmaceutical rep, has never run for office before. To surprise of absolutely no one, he's running on a strict, conservative platform. Also, applying gender pronouns to America at large.
"I want to help restore America to what she once was—a nation that builds freedom and prosperity on the anchor of God," Dasher told the Shreveport Times.
His candidacy, blessed by the full, reality television-provided and supported powers of the entire Duck Dynasty family, will be about returning G-O-D to this godforsaken country of ours.
"I got to looking around at the problems in politics today, and what I see in Washington, D.C., is no God. There is no God. The elite political class thinks they can be running our lives," he told the Associated Press. "I think there's a vacuum in D.C. of people who understand where rights come from. Rights don't come from men. They come from God."
