I just want you to know that a trunk without an elephant is not a pretty thing. This elephant is a bit pissed, too, as she and her mom are being moved because they can’t get along with other elephants at their zoo. I’d say it symbolizes the dilemma the GOP finds itself in as right wing Tea Party candidates keep picking off elections. But the photo was taken in the Netherlands.
