The Picture from Iowa, 2012: Perry, a Prayer and a Cookie
This is the sixth post in our series, The Picture from Iowa, 2012 based on photos and on-the-ground conversations with photographer Brendan Hoffman leading up to the Ames Straw Poll, combined with analysis by The Bag.
Again, it’s another shot from Iowa that’s mostly a caricature (this one, of a religious order). I have to say, though, given how his candidate has been working the God-card, Jeff here, amidst the sanctity, standing in mid-prayer with a stack of Rick Perry flyers in one hand and a half-eaten chocolate chip cookie in the other, seems like the perfect endorsement for his man.
