If you feel like your life has been devoid of elephant sightings – in particular blue elephant sightings – you might want to drop by and visit my house. In the past week, we’ve had somewhat frequent visits from various “big” and “heavy” pachyderms. Or so my 2-year-old daughter tells us. Sometimes the elephants are “babies,” but lately they’ve all been “blue.”
Hey, if you’ve got half an imagination, it’ll beat most anything you see on The Discovery Channel.
Seriously, though, I’m taking this fascination with elephants as a sign of some innate Republican sensibility. And when I say Republican, I interpret it in the sense of the traditional Reagan conservative coalition. The blue part? Beats me. Any theories out there? Personally, I just think it’s her favorite color.
