Keith Cowing has dug up some old pics of the president’s father in a bunny suit, too, from way back in 1981 when he was VP.
See, I run a non-partisan website here.
Kerry’s are still funnier, though.

Keith says in comments that he cast a broad net, but that this was the only fish that turned up.
Note to Karl Rove: I think that it might be very effective for the president (in the interest of “changing the tone” and compassionate conservatism) to go down to the cape and have some bunnysuit shots taken of himself (though without the giant hose suppository shot). He could then make a speech honoring all the technicians and others who have to wear those outfits every day, but don’t normally get praised, and to use it (unlike Kerry) as an occasion to actually talk about space policy. It would look classy and be hard for the press to make fun of, while making Kerry’s response to this look even worse.

A commenter beat me to the thought (I saw Keith’s comment in email, not by reading the comments).
Once again, it’s nice to have readers smarter than me.
