Each day until Election Day we will feature a previously unpublished photo sent in by a Legal Insurrection reader on National Empty Chair Day, September 3, 2012.

The countdown continues with 12 days to go.

Today’s Empty Chair photo comes to us from Sam in California.

There’s something lovely about the play of light and shadow in this photo that starkly contrasts and softens the somewhat harsh “GTFO” message.  It captures, I think, the anger, sorrow, and ultimate hope for an Obama defeat that many Americans feel . . . that this American feels, anyway.

(Note: DO NOT SEND additional photos, we are using only photos originally submitted on National Empty Chair Day.)
