    Oo, Oo, I know this one! It was used by a political cartoonist and eventually adopted by the party. Before that, an eagle represented the Republican party.

  2. Thanks, Heidi! I actually didn’t know and was hoping some astute blogger, like you, would post the answer. But do we know what kind???

    Judging by the size of its ears in the cartoon, I would say that it is Asian. However, I am not sure if the cartoonist knew there were different kinds of elephants 🙂

    The Republicans chose the elephant because they didn’t want to look like asses and they didn’t give a hoot where it came from.

  5. Winnie: excellent observation. I couldn’t have said it better!
