The Congrelephant Bus

image
[From Life magazine for October 18 1954]


A strange vehicle rolled down Denver's Ivanhoe Street one day last week and pulled to a stop in front of No. 626. It had once been a bus until Mrs. Ellen Harris, G.O.P. candidate for Congress in Colorado's First District, gave it the jawbreaking name of "Congrelephant," and made it over. From the front hung an elephant's trunk spouting smoke. It had a tail and four-foot ears, and big blue eyes were painted on the windshield.

Surely there is a place for a revived Congrelephant Bus in this election year.

The GOP will need more than a cool bus.
How about disclosing those tax returns, Mr. Romney? I hear your dad started the tradition. What is taking you so long??
