Republican lawmakers hoping to brandish their conservative credentials were lining up Tuesday night to tweet photos of themselves with Willie Robertson, the star of the A&E reality show "Duck Dynasty."

Robertson's father Phil was temporarily suspended from the show for making anti-gay remarks in a GQ article, but then allowed back after Republicans rallied behind him. Willie Robertson is attending the State of the Union address as the guest of Rep. Vance McAllister (R-La.).

Korie Robertson, Willie's wife, also is attending, compliments of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). Several conservatives posted pictures of themselves with Willie Robertson and said how honored they were to meet him.
