If it's Monday, It Must be 'Empty Chair Day'
Tea Party Tribune ^ | 2012-09-02 19:18:17 | mrcurmudgeon

By Mr. Curmudgeon:

Are you feeling lucky? Well, are you, punks? Inspired by Clint Eastwood's Republican Convention soliloquy to an empty chair, representing the vacant years of the Obama presidency, many have been inspired to emulate Eastwood by declaring Monday (formally known as Labor Day) "Empty Chair Day."

As you may recall, the action hero of such film classics as "Dirty Harry" and "The Outlaw Josey Wales" used an empty chair as a prop to address our failed president. "We own this country," Eastwood said to the chair, "Politicians are employees of ours ... and when somebody does not do the job, we've got to let them go."

And Eastwood's idea has caught on.

I saw a photo posted on the Internet that shows a lone chair sitting on a front lawn. On it rests a sign that reads, "Labor Day has been cancelled due to lack of jobs. Monday is now Empty Chair Day. Put an empty chair in your front yard. Thank you, Clint, for bringing this to our attention."

On Facebook, a graphic artist took inspiration from Frank Shepard Fairely's iconic 2008 Obama poster, emblazoned with the word "Hope," and substituted a chair where the president's face once beamed ... oh, and the word "Chair."

In yet another contribution, a photo shows an empty chair with an empty suit dangling nearby.

So, go ahead, make Clint's day ... Empty Chair Day.

Obama probably believes all the empty chairs are a tribute to him. He thinks he’s Elijah.

Ever since Eastwood’s presentation, Obama has been sitting in my LazyBoy. He says it is more comfortable than anything on Air Force One and refuses to get out of my affairs.

Just now I placed an old wooden office chair in my driveway with a flag taped on it. I suspect that the politically unaware neighbors will not get it. But my more knowable neighbors will appreciate the gesture.

When we recently moved to a new home, we found a cheap lawn chair in the garage from the previous owners. It has the seat neatly cut out...so we surmise it was used for comfort when out camping and using nature as one’s bathroom.

That is the chair we put out to “honor” The First Dictator today.

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away...

Clint did a masterful job, we will not forget.

Empty chair, indeed! Better than ZERO!
