In another sign that Clint Eastwood’s RNC talk to an empty chair has tapped in to broadly held opinions that President Obama is not getting the job done, word spread rapidly over the weekend among conservative new media outlets that an impromptu “National Empty Chair Day” is being planned for Monday.
Monday – Empty Chair Day
That’s what reader Sandy writes:
Prof – Seems that there is an effort to make Monday “empty chair day”
[Here’s] an image of my front lawn, just mowed, to ensure the empty chair looks right. The sign next to the chair says:
“We own this country . . . Politicians are employees of ours . . . And when somebody does not do the job, we’ve got to let them go.” –Clint Eastwood (emphasis added)
As Professor Jacobson tells it, National Empty Chair Day is designed to be a user-driven event.
Who knew an empty chair could expose so much.
Send me your “empty chair” photos on Monday, and I’ll run them.
The Twitter hashtag is #EmptyChairDay
It now appears quite likely that the DNC will open on Monday with images of empty chairs dominating Facebook, Twitter, and the internet. Once again conservative new media outlets have framed the narrative that continues to get away from the Obama 2012 campaign team.
