The Times reported:

The photograph, taken at a Labor Day rally at Valley Forge, has been  circulating across the Internet, particularly among veterans. It was posted  Monday on the NewsMax.com Web site.

Mr. Kerry spoke at the 1970 rally, the culmination of a three-day protest  hike from Moorestown, N.J., to Valley Forge, which featured a speech by Miss  Fonda and a reading by Hollywood actor Donald Sutherland.

“Seeing this picture of Kerry with her at antiwar demonstrations in the United  States just makes me want to throw up,” said Rep. Sam Johnson (R-TX).  According to the Times, Johnson spent nearly seven years in a prisoner-of-war camp in Vietnam.

Now, Kerry’s set to become the next Secretary of State.
