The elephant's not even pink

The city of St. Paul, MN, thinks a local bar is going too far in planning to have a live elephant on hand during the Republican National Convention.

"Nothing good can come from an elephant in a bar," said Bob Kessler, who heads the city's Department of Licensing and Regulation.

The owners of Shamrock's Bar & Grill came up with the idea of stationing an elephant at the door during the convention as a way to lure in convention-goers, but city officials are saying no-go to the idea.

Extra points: During the convention, the bar is offering the "Politician's Burger," a thick baloney sandwich.
