Eva Longoria makes a cheerful exit after getting her hair done Thursday afternoon in Los Angeles. In the photo credited to Ramey, she is wearing Alex Woo's Little Activist Donkey to support President Obama's re-election.
The now-famous Democratic donkey was first associated with Democrat Andrew Jackson's 1828 presidential campaign. Later, cartoonist Thomas Nast used the Democratic donkey in newspaper cartoons and made the symbol famous. Democrats today say the donkey is smart and brave, while Republicans say the elephant is strong and dignified.
