Election Day Empty Chair Countdown – Day 3

Election Day Empty Chair Countdown – Day 3

Each day until Election Day we will feature a previously unpublished photo sent in by a Legal Insurrection reader on National Empty Chair Day, September 3, 2012.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

Today’s Empty Chair photo feast is of photo submissions that include Joe Biden as the Empty Chair Vice President.  After all, we are electing both a president and a vice president in only 3 days.

The first entry comes to us from Ben in Florida who writes, “Don’t worry Joe, I got your back!”

It’s not your eyes, the photo is blurry.  The file was a bit smallish, and I did my best to make it presentable because I love the irony here.

Our next photo was submitted by Lisa in California who writes, “We need to go a step farther and put a chair out for Biden.”

I can’t tell which is which, but perhaps Joe’s the one in the brown shirt jacket?

Our next Empty Chair Vice President photo comes from John and Kim in Arizona.

Green plastic empty chairs. I’m still laughing.

Next up is photo from Scott in California.

His message is clear, I think. Heh.

Our next great Empty Chair President and Vice President Chair comes from Thomas in Missouri.

The Uncle Sam text reads, “You are fired!”  Let’s hope.

Our final Empty Chair President and Vice President Empty Chair photo comes to us from Bill in California who writes, “Note the 48-star flag on the right chair-it symbolizes this country’s finest hour when it came together to win WW2.”

Bill draws our attention to the chair on the right with an excellent point, but my attention shifts to the chair on the left.  Or more specifically to the chair behind the Empty Chair.  I wonder if that one is reserved for Valerie Jarrett?

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

Off topic: Romney is elected. What’s the counterpart to the “empty chair”? And, will there be submissions for this?

Instead of putting out a yard sign this year, we simply put an empty wood folding chair out front with a picture of Uncle Sam on it. I’ve seen other such ‘yard symbols’ around, as well.
