Country: United States
Prohibition of alcoholic beverages in the United States was a controversial and much debated issue for the country and its elected officials. In this cartoon the two major political parties are shown in their usual representations: the Democrats as a donkey and the Republicans as an elephant. The cartoon implies that it would be harmful for the Democrats should they ignore the question of Prohibition or take a stance against it. This prospect gives obvious amusement to the Republican elephant in the background.
