Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin paid a visit to the Duck Commander crew when she was in Monroe, La. for a book signing at the Books-A-Million.
Palin was promoting her new book, “Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas” Saturday when she met the Robertsons and tweeted:
Thank you, Monroe, Louisiana! Had a blast meeting the Duck Commander gang as well as the great folks who came to… http://t.co/XhtubG8hUz

She posted photos of both the book signing and her visit with the Robertson’s on her Facebook page, along with her personal thoughts and descriptions.
“Happy, happy, happy!” Thanks to the Robertson family and the Duck Commander team for welcoming us to West Monroe, LA! #GoodTidingsAndGreatJoy

I totally agree.
Of the book itself, Peter Schweizer of Breitbart News wrote:
The book’s blending of personal experience with discussions of political efforts to morph Christmas into a homogenized celebration of the “holidays” makes for a brisk and enjoyable read. Even as we learn that Todd Palin gives the Governor what she considers the coolest of Christmas gifts—such as a .30-06 rifle, hockey skates, and a “beautiful red manual ice auger for ice fishing”—Palin packs powerful punches.
“If I’m for Christmas, it’s only because I’m for Christ,” writes Gov. Palin, according to Breitbart. “There is no ultimate peace apart from Christ, and it is Christ who empowers every act of ‘goodwill toward men’ in our otherwise fallen hearts.”
The book also discusses the war some in society wage on Christmas.
“There are few things that anger a secular liberal atheist more than a horizontal plank intersecting a vertical plank—a cross—on public land,” writes Palin. “Perhaps Christmas causes so much anger because the very name of the holiday broadcasts the Name above all Names.”
