Elephants and Donkeys

Ever wondered how the elephant and the donkey came to represent the Republican and the Democrat parties, respectively? Well, Jen and I were wondering exactly the same thing this evening. I mean, who picks those animals out of the entire animal kingdom?? So, I did some research and I have to give major props to the internet for making the information so easily accessible. The explanation’s kinda long but interesting, so I encourage you to check it out here.

Enjoy and let me know what you think!
