    Nicely done (not really). Seriously though, reading is fundamental . . . you should try it sometime.

    I don't see how anyone can make that determination as of yet.

    Ever hear of the law of unintended consequences? It very can rise up so easily and bit one in the butt very quickly. An example here, the Republicans shut down the government to defund the ACA. The unintended consequences as the shut actually helped the ACA law itself. The GaP between those who favored the ACA to opposed was 14-19 points advantage oppose prior to the shutdown. After the shutdown that gap narrowed to 4-10 points.

    In other words the Republicans thought the people would back them in their attempt to defund the ACA, the reverse is what happened. Sort of like with Mr. Duck here, GLAAD thought by bringing this to the attention of the viewership of TV reality programs that it would cut into the audience of Mr. Duck. But what it has done is bring that show to the attention of quite a lot of people who never bothered to watch it and now it has piqued their interests. So hence all this publicity will probably bring the show higher ratings than before. An unexpected bonanza for both A&E and Mr. Duck.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    It is all free publicity for both A&E and Mr. Duck. When it comes to TV shows and characters, actors in the realm of show biz, they all want publicity. This show is being plastered all over the news on every channel and on tons of talk shows and late night shows. It boils down to millions of dollars of free advertising. It piques peoples curiosity of those who never even heard of the show or who never tuned in before. Now they will want to watch it to see what all his hassle is all about.

    Keep in mind most people are not political junkies like us here on this site. They don't follow politics on a daily basis. Heck they don't follow it on a weekly basis and only when something is in the news over and over again will they finally perk up and may want to find out what that is all about. Around where I live, gays are probably some people who live in Atlanta and they don't care one way or the other. They are too busy living their own lives.
