Another question from a lowly ex-stray cat

I’m just a lowly ex-stray cat so there are oodles of things I don’t know. Here’s one of the those things unknown to me. Why do Republicans have an elephant for their mascot? We have no elephants in this country. The only ones here are members of the zoo family or members of the circus family. Umm, wonder what message the Republicans are trying to send us when their mascot reminds us of zoos and circuses?

Have a great weekend and remember to make somebody smile

if you ask any elephant --- and you can talk to them better than any of us humans, they will tell you they hate being the symbol of a party that is intolerant, greedy, arrogant, bellicose, and a bunch of out-and-out liars.

fred you make me i will pass your good wishes to my george and others.

An 1874 Nast cartoon depicted the GOP as an elephant demolishing the "flimsy planks" of the Democrats, that's why. Stands to reason they'd stick with the symbol: gray, wrinkled, big, dumb and powerful.

Love ya, Fred. Enjoy some weed this weekend, sweetie.

Fred- each time I see you I think you get cuter and cuter. In fact, each time I see you, I am actually pretty are cuter!

Onto the question at hand. I happen to love elephants and it makes me sad that they have this fine creature for their symbol.

However, I pretty much love all animals so I guess I wish they had something else to represent them. Maybe a piece of trash? That might do the trick.

Maybe they chose this animal because they are not so smart and they thought... Oh that looks big and will stomp all over people who we don't like! With its big feet and its mighty cry, trunk extended!

Little did they know about the gentle giants, who are only to be feared, when you arouse their wrath.

One day Distributorcap and I went to the zoo in Berlin. I have a photo of him with an elephant in the background and it is the only known sighting of him with this repub icon!!!

Elephants have a long trunk to run their dribble out of, and Republicans have more than enough dribble to run from their snouty trunks as well.

That's why I characterize the GOP candidates as a group of poo-flinging monkeys - it's closer to reality.

.... and the Dems mascot is an ass.

....ot that there anything wrong with that, everyone loves a little ass.

Do the independents have a mascot?

The same cartoonist Thomas Nast actually popularized both symbols in the pages of Harper's.
Andrew Jackson used the donkey is his campaign when his opponents called him an ass and he ran with the concept of a strong willed animal.

Fred- I think that's a good question. I always thought they chose the elephant because elephants put out the biggest piles of shit than any animal. It's like going to a GOP Convention, you need your shovels.

It's because elephants are full of crap. Talk to any zookeeper and he will tell you, elephants are just chock full of crap.

Well "fred" I tell you i think they just want their symbol to be big and powerful, but not threatning.

Excellent question. I believe I'll start asking it.

Heh heh. We agree with Mike. Maw was a volunteer keeper at the Dallassssss Zoo and she had great difficulty shoveling the elephant shit....

I think this is absolute proof that all Republicans secretly want to be put inside cages with mounds of their own crap around them.... and have peanuts tossed at them.... and have very mean and nasty people taunt them.

I *was* going to say that the elephant is a good mascot for the GOP because it produces vast quantities of shit for others to clean up. But since several other commenters beat me to it, I won't.

I think Candace is spot on with her observation that "they're using that long nose to get into everyone's business."

And I am grateful to "Darwin's Dagger" for coming up with a mascot for us Independents. The platypus! A bit of this and a bit of that. Perfect!

The thing that confuses me is supposedly elephants never forget, but one of the Republican's favorite phrases is, "I can't recall."

Elephants are such wonderful animals. They shouldn't have to be put in that position.
