Happy National Empty Chair Day! ***MORE PHOTOS***

If you haven’t heard, today is National Empty Chair Day in honor of Clint Eastwood and our AWOL Campaigner-in-Chief:

What better way to commemorate the Labor Day holiday than to send a message to the AWOL campaign-in-chief — and support Clint Eastwood, to boot!

Twitchy has the story of the latest Eastwood-inspired social media phenomenon. First, #eastwooding.

Now: #EmptyChairDay.

Decorate yours any way you want it: Nobama stickers, Romney/Ryan yard signs, golf clubs, mom jeans, etc. Email/tweet us your best entries.

My decoration’s going to be “We own this country!” sign, in tribute to Eastwood’s best line from his speech.

Have fun! You know they’re going to call it racist, anyway.

Send photos of your chair to me via my email address on my contact page with the subject line “my empty chair” and we’ll post them here throughout the day. Also include your name if you want it on the caption and one entry per person please.

Happy National Empty Chair Day!

UPDATE: Here are your empty chairs!

Thanks everyone for your photos today. Unfortunately I can’t take any more as I have actual blogging to do (instead of resizing photos, etc.) but together we’ve made #EmptyChairDay fabulous! So glad you all participated!

Brilliant roundup, as was Eastwood’s attention-getting, spot-on improv. Liberals never could understand the concept of metaphor.

The empty chair in the white house photo is truer than we think. That chair WAS empty, and Obama was airbrushed into it. Look at the size of his head compared with those around him (in the actual white house photo). This was the first “empty chair”, unless we point out that the chair in the oval office, the one behind the desk, has been empty four almost four years. The “occupied” chair is the seat in the golf cart.

Okay, nobody will see this here, but what the heck…

Doug Ross again… Funniest #EmptyChairDay Photos Yet!

BONUS: Scoop’s pic made it in there, because it’s durned funny. But there are a few more over there with it that are so funny you might sprain a gut laughing. So careful!

I found the one with the empty doctor chair particularly potent, because already seniors and disabled people are being affected with a lack of doctors by Obamacare.

All these photos were great. I felt the best photo was that last one, the one Hillary sent to Scoop there at the end. But I was dismayed that everybody forgot the biggest empty chairs of them all – the ones at the DNC tonight.

Thanks, Scoop, for posting all the great pictures. Everybody should get their ‘scoop’ shovels out to listen to the speeches tonight. It might get deep.

Fun! Fun! I put out 3 chairs in different locations for this special occasion, and I am going to put out another in my other home location….right smack in the middle of the front yard after my tree trimmer is here tomorrow. I live in a pretty heavy dem neighborhood. It will so much fun….from now until election is over.

TRS, let us know when you get your notice from the white house to take down your pic. After all, the first amendment works only up to the point that you are deemed to be racist.

They were all superb “empty chairs”. Fun to look at. I’m glad so many entered. Eastwood’s speech really made an impact.

Is any one going to watch the Dim convention? I just can’t bring myself to do it. I’ll hear about it from Rush.

I’m not going to watch. I have high blood pressure and don’t want to risk having a stroke before I can vote. I’ll hear about it from my girlfriend in Texas – she despises Obama too.

Go to the following DNC website and let them know what you think of their pathetic attempt to fill empty chairs by bussing in bus loads of blacks, homeless and others to build a fake audience for the fake president.

I like the idea. It’s hilarious. I’m more excited about the fact that grass roots are now able put something like this together so suddenly.

But, honestly, we would be so much better off if the president’s chair were empty.

There’s so much funny stuff out there. And there’s no way I can see it all, but I want to. Clint vs. the red chair shootout was hilarious. One of the facebook pages on national empty chair day is never ending. It just gets better and better.

THE CHAIR HAS LEGS!

because we have a black racist neighbor. lolol. Well, if he tries to steal the chair, the 357 will catch him!
