Vitter made the comments in one of his first wide-ranging interviews since he announced his candidacy for governor in January.

Actually, Duck Dynasty seems to be making a resurgence in politics lately. Zach Dasher, a 36-year old Republican who is the nephew of Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson, announced Monday that he's running for Rep. Vance McAllister's (R-LA) congressional seat.

In December, Robertson, the patriarch of the hit show, found himself in the national spotlight for a long-winded rant against Islamists, "Shintos" and "homosexual behavior."
