Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin loves the "Duck Dynasty" fever sweeping America, suggesting that Republicans turn to the famous family to find their way through the political wilderness.

“[I]t’s time our politicians wake up and hear some Duck calls from far outside the beltway,” she explained on Facebook, praising the show’s record ratings on cable. “The self-made, hugely successful businessmen (and women) of Duck Dynasty made history this week with the ‘most watched non-fiction series’ in TV history.”

Palin also praised a video of the star of the A&E television show Phil Robertson delivering a speech against abortion rights that has gone viral on the internet.

“To our GOP leaders in Washington, especially — this is what Americans desire and deserve; we’re not rooting for your social truces. As Phil so rightly asks, ‘What in the world has happened to us?’” she added.

Palin posted a photo of herself and her husband Todd with Robertson at the 2013 NRA convention.

“Kudos to these Duck dudes for speaking their minds, and for their boldness in living the American dream of LIFE, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness — reminding us all that it’s only with freedom that anything is possible,” she concluded.
