One of the drawbacks of living in the DC area is elephants. As you probably know, the elephant is the symbol of the GOP.
Frankly, that makes me really blue. OK, bluer. I am a Democrat and I love Elephants.
Republicans are nothing like elephants. Elephants work together for the good of the herd. They are sweet unless you piss them off. They are gentle. They help each other. They understand climate change.
I could give you a million other reasons why the elephant should not be the symbol of today’s GOP, but let me just show you this video to prove my point:
You’ll notice not one adult elephant, NOT ONE telling that little baby elephant to pull itself up by its bootstraps.
I rest my case.

AND IF you’d like to make my puppy Duncan a pinup star, please vote/donate to the Arlington (VA) Animal Welfare League. Here’s my post with info: http://fiftyfourandahalf.com/2014/10/01/vote-early-for-duncan/ I was going to do a widget on my sidebar, but UMMMMMM, I can’t remember how. OK, so I am not technically minded. Or minded technically. Or able to do widgets. Sigh.
