It looks like A&E won’t have to deal with the pesky business of editing out “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson. After suspending the star for his response to a GQ question about sin, A&E went on to air episodes of the hit series last night.

And the episodes included Mr. Robertson, natch.

Funny that.

Ka-ching! The high and mighty and so-much-better-than-you A&E has no qualms about cashing in on Robertson, even as network execs sneer at his religious beliefs about homosexuality and make kissy faces at noisy LGBT bullies.

Robertson’s views are so detestable — so beyond the pale — that A&E is … giving him air time? Can this ridiculous kerfuffle get any more absurd?

Meanwhile, A&E has yet to respond to the growing #StandWithPhil movement.
