The Clampets are dropped off in Washington, D.C., our nation's capital. After taking in all the sites and having some hysterical interactions with locals and officials, they decide to exercise their redneck constitutional rights. When they try to get in to the White House to speak to their least favorite president, they are turned away. They are told they might have more luck tracking down their local congressman than the president of the United States. Aimee leads the charge as the family storms D.C. in search of one of their Louisiana congressmen. Along the way, Doug gets excited over a quick Internet search when he finds a cardboard regatta, a competition where teams race elaborate, homemade boats made out of cardboard. After part of the family competes in a nine-pound burger challenge while the other half tries a beer drinking competition, they get together to meet their congressman, John Fleming. They take to the podium to get to the bottom of a very serious issue -- the potholes on Route 5 in Shreveport. With their political prowess behind them, Doug gets the family to switch gears and use their redneck ingenuity to try and take the top prize at the cardboard regatta. They deck the boat up in tons of Fleming swag in support of their new buddy.
