Did anyone actually see the candidate eat the rat?

I have been looking for this cartoon for years. It made a lasting impression on me. It is by a cartoonist named M.K. Brown and it ran in the National Lampoon in August 1972. I hope it is sufficiently legible that I won’t have to explain it. Put Romney’s head there (or one of the more rabid contenders) and you will see that this cartoon is not dated in the slightest.

The candidate eats rat.

Blaine L. Reininger was born July 10, 1953 in Pueblo, Colorado. Then he lived a life. By and by, he founded Tuxedomoon with Steven Brown in 1977. He traipsed around America, tuxedomooning until 1980, when he began to traipse around Europe. As a direct result of all of this traipsing, many musical compositions were composed, most of which found their way to some sort of mechanical device capable of reproducing musical compositions. This was mostly for the good. He now lives in Athens, Greece, where he is content.
