image for Animal Rights Protesters Demand Republicans and Democrats Change Mascot
New Democratic Mascot?

Washington D.C.- Hundreds of Thousands of protesters converged on Washington this week filling the Capitol Mall and monuments.

"We demand the Republicans and Democrats choose new Mascots, they do not embody the fine qualities of Donkeys and Elephants. Donkeys are stubborn, yet strong resilient creatures with brains the size of pecans. Elephants are huge majestic creature with intelligence beyond our comprehension. Neither party lives up to these characteristics!" said one protester.

Republican Majority Leader, John Boehner was brought to tears by the protest, "I can't get to my car! I'm double parked and I got a ticket!!!"

Democratic Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi said, "I think the Donkey is just like our party, a bunch of stubborn Jack As...." We had to cut off the rest of her comment.

Demonstrators have suggested new Mascots for both parties, "We are recommending the Republicans try the Amoeba and for the Dems we are recommending a run over Armadillo."

Protesters have sworn not to leave Washington until they have achieved a complete change of the current mascots and party system.

"We would like to see the two party system dismantled and a completely new democratic system established, with freedom of speech respected. Oh and this includes elimination of the Libertarians and Tea Party as well."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
