Iowa, with its first-in-the-nation caucus, is where candidates test their presidential timber. So it should come as no surprise that Senator John Kerry was making the rounds Saturday through the various tailgates before the Iowa State-Iowa game in Iowa City. Now when reader Jacob alerted us to the top photo being on an Iowa message board, we were skeptical that it was another fark job. But after a little investigation, we found the bottom shot available through the website of the Burlington Hawk Eye. Authentic? Certainly appears to be the case.
Update: Thanks to reader Mikey, who found the photo on Wonkette. It was taken by Rodney White of the Des Moines Register.
