Vintage Political Cartoons: Who Do You Like the Best?

A Donkey and Elephant looking at a woman. Who do you like the best, the elephant asks. I hate both of you equally, the woman responds.

I’ve been exploring some vintage political cartoons and I’m going to start repurposing them as meme/cartoons for today. I’ll post both my edited version and the original version with historical comments (if there are any). I reversed the order of the characters so the order of the text would work better.
