Previously I discussed how Julia Preston of the New York Times had gone to Michigan and discovered that the Senate's immigration bill isn't playing too well in the heartland, with the heartland striking back. However, I missed the photo to the right; it appears on the second page of the NYT's online report.
I don't want to call him a toothless yokel, but his facial expression makes him look a bit like a yokel, and he obviously is missing a few teeth. John and Ken are suggesting mailing in photos of yourself (assuming they're better as I'm no doubt sure).
As indicated at the first link, the NYT featured someone who supports mass deportations; combined with the photo, I think what they're getting at is clear. Note also that in the same article Preston uses some rather forceful words ("assault", "relentless", etc.) to describe the opposition; see another example here.
