If you are a Republican through and through, then you might want to check out the $32.95 Republican Elephant Hat. This is one fashion accessory that is guaranteed to let everyone who crosses your path to know just which side of the political divide are you in cahoots with, to the very end. One question though – just how the heck did the Elephant get associated with Republicans, and Donkeys with Democrats? A little bit of history showed that all the way back in 1874, cartoonist Thomas Nast used the Democratic donkey and Republican Elephant in newspaper cartoons, eventually turning them into permanent representations of the modern parties you see today. It ought to fit majority of the adult heads out there thanks to its internal elastic headband.
