I think the Republicans should replace the GOP elephant with the more approrpate, "Tardigrade" ...They also posses a level of survivability that is beyond absurd. They are so hardy that researchers sometimes have difficulties finding environments that will harm them. When an environment starts to become too hostile for them, they enter a state known as cryptobiosis. This is essentially a freeze-dried state that allows them to endure just about anything. Yep, that certainly seems to describe Glenn Beck.
