Adopts Little Lulu’s Tubby
With an eye to aligning the Republican Party with the reality of it’s current membership, the GOP announced today through a press release from Koch Industries, owners of the Republican Party, that the idea of elephants being known for their long memories was incongruous with today’s Tea Bagger, do as we say, not as we do, brand of politics.
At a later press conference, Snidely Whiplash, spokesperson for the Republican National Committee, and speaking with the permission of Percival and Pierpont Koch, majority shareholders of the Republican Party, elaborated. “The modern Tea Bagger version of the GOP relies upon it’s members short memories. Imagine the chaos that would ensue if, at the same time we’re beating Obama over the head about the national debt, our members recalled that the beatified Ronald Reagan quadrupled the national debt, and that W. Bush doubled that, with the two of them raising the debt ceiling twenty five times, I’m not sure if even FOX’s “No Shit Zone” could spin that.”
“So”, continued Whiplash, “We’ve decided to adopt a mascot that not only reflects the mischievous attitude of our current Republican membership, but also bears a physical resemblance to many in our leadership.”
