Photo of the day

It has always amused me how much many little kids seem to care about the animals mascots of the Democratic and Republican parties.  I get the sense that elementary school teachers may way over-emphasize this aspect to get kids interested in politics.  I don’t think it actually does much good.  Anyway, apparently in India that government has ruled that a number of elephant statues are too closely tied to a single political party and therefore must be covered up before the impending election.  This leads to a rather intriguing Time magazine photo essay.  My favorite below.
