Happy Birthay!

Its the Republican Elephant's 131'st birthday today!

In 1874 the democratic party promoted the [false] belief that President Ulysses S. Grant would seek an unprecedented third term. Harper's Weekly cartoonist Thomas Nast's editorial cartoon depicted the democrats as a "donkey" trying to frighten the republicans who were depicted as an elephant. Both symbols stuck to their respective parties, and we have since been blessed with this benovelent creature as our mascot.
