I can't ever remember if Democrats or Republicans are the red or the blue states, and which one has which (ridiculous) animal icon association - elephant or donkey.

Basically I am a political apathist and I couldn't care less, but it annoys me that I can't keep them straight in my mind. Anyone have a good mnemonic to help me remember??

Democrats are Blue and use the Mule (stubborn as)
Republicans are Red and use the Elephant (never forget)

Which actually changed in the 1992 election. Until then, Dems were shown as red, and Pubbys as blue.

Easy for me to remember then.... Dems = left wing commie libs Pubby's = Blue Blood Elitist snobs. Green Party = Green like well.... Green stuff.... But they had to screw it all up.

And Elephants can't jump. And a Donkey is what Don Quixote rode as he tilted at windmills.

Let me take a wild guess Tex. You are not a Democrat.

The way I see it, the left will take my your money and give it to the poor. The right will take it and give it to the rich. For those of us in the middle, it is just a case of deciding who we want to have our money.

I am neither a Republican nor a Democrat..I vote for the man not the party but nowadays it's hard to tell one from the the majority of them are crooked! I think in the next presidential election I'll vote for Snoopy!
