This all mystifies me since the Democrats have a perfectly fine logo in the Jackass and I mean that sincerely. The Jackass has been associated with the Democrats since Andrew Jackson, the father of the Democrat Party, was called a Jackass along with every other name in the book. Jackson adopted the Jackass as a symbol, and the connection has stuck. Most grassroots Democrats like to think of themselves as onery and tough, just like the Jackass. Changing this for a symbol that looks like it was devised by an advertising exec with the imagination of a stool is beyond me. However, the powers that be in the Democrat party apparently pay as little heed to grassroot Democrats as some of the GOP establishment pay to grassrroot Republicans.
