Politico/Drudge ^ | 9/3/12 | TIM MAK and JUANA SUMMERS

Posted on 09/03/2012 11:23:55 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

The right rallied on Labor Day to celebrate “National Empty Chair Day,” a show of solidarity with Clint Eastwood after his infamous address to an invisible President Barack Obama at the Republican National Convention last week.

shucks, i think i have every Clint Eastwood movie except for “Pink Cadillac”. Looking for that one.

Clint has always been my favorite, now even more.

I am going downstairs and take a picture of an empty chair.

then a picture of an empty suit.

but then again, the rats are trying to bring in betty white?

that will work. right?

Blessings, bobo

He signed a folding metal chair for our charity event’s silent auction a few years ago. It was pretty hilarious. I think it’s great he can laugh at himself enough to have signed it for us. I think it went for around $300.

"Hey, where'd he go?"

"Wait - is that him over there?"

"Nah - he's got clothes on."

And yes, that is the sewer cleanout. Seemed appropriate.

Shouldn’t there also be a long Bendy-Straw?

We're doing our part. Here's our National Empty Chair Day display.

Of course, this is in Murtha's old district, but I walked outside earlier and there was an SUV literally stopped in the street in front of our Empty Chair. At first he had a quizzical look, then he started visibly belly-laughing as he drove away.

Yep, found them here on FR and printed them out. My daughter noted the threat of rain, so she insisted we laminate the photos with clear contact paper. I think this is staying up till election day. Or at least every Monday till then.
