The interesting thing about this — beyond that image of Cruz in camouflage — is where it lies along the weird, tangled history of Robertson family political endorsements. The path is fairly direct, in fact.
2013: The Robertsons endorse Vance McAllister in a special election for a House seat in Louisiana. McAllister goes on to win. He soon decides that the job "sucks."
2014: In April, McAllister is caught on camera making out with a staffer, to the chagrin of his wife. Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.) calls on McAllister to resign. McAllister announces he won't run for reelection that November.
In June, he changes his mind. Phil Robertson revokes his endorsement of McAllister and instead endorses Zach Dasher, a family cousin. Dasher doesn't win the seat.
Meanwhile, Jindal's archenemy David Vitter is running to replace him as governor. The Robertsons give him their blessing.
At about the same time, Jindal dropped out of the presidential race after his attempts to undermine Ted Cruz come up empty.
2016: Robertson endorses Cruz. The great wheel of life keeps on spinning.
Correction: Dasher lost! Not sure why I remembered it otherwise. Corrected.
