    Just widen the sign.

    Actually, the fact that the perspective on the second sign is perfectly flat, as if the camera were facing it head on, could be evidence that someone just superimposed a fake sign over the real one, with different perspective and different dimensions.

    I'm not saying that this is what was done, but I am saying that it wouldn't be difficult.

    Basically, I'm pretty convinced that the guy holding the sign in both photos is the same guy.  I suppose it's possible, as you suggest, that he swapped signs with someone else between the time the two photographs were taken, although that seems like a bit of a stretch.  Given the fact that there are already a bunch of photoshopped pics of teabagger signs floating around out there, I think there's a reasonable probability that this is one of them, given what I'm seeing.

    Now, as to why people are out there photoshopping teabagger signs, I have no idea.  I mean, the real thing is batshit-crazy enough without the "enhancement," so it seems pointless.  Not to mention self-defeating, since it makes us all look dishonest.
