The empty chair staring at the empty teleprompter.

Clint Eastwood gave his first post-convention interview today explaining how he came to address the “empty chair” and just what he thinks of the reaction.

Speaking with The Carmel Pine Cone, a local California paper, Eastwood said that “President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” and explained that it...

The Good

Wow.  Just Wow at the reaction.  I never imagined that Empty Chair Day would sweep the nation, take over Twitter, make its way to the banner headline at Drudge and stories at The Wall Street Journal and elsewhere. (added) Michael Patrick Leahy has details on the press coverage and how...

I’m breaking this down into multiple posts because the volume of submissions was so high – the enthusiasm has been overwhelming (that’s the word of the day) at several levels.

This will be a continuation of the photos after the first post, National Empty Chair Day (photos from around country), became too long.

UPDATE – No new submissions being accepted for now, the response was so overwhelming that there’s already a huge backlog.

Today is the impromptu National Empty Chair Day, which I covered on Saturday night when a reader alerted me to the idea.  At the time there were about a half dozen tweets from @YouTooCongress, but little...

That’s what reader Sandy writes:

Prof – Seems that there is an effort to make Monday “empty chair day”

Below is an image of my front lawn, just mowed, to ensure the emptychair looks right.  The sign next to the chair says:

We own this country . . . Politicians are employees of...

Badger Pundit has put together this video interspersing parts of Clint Eastwood’s speech at the RNC with the advertisement that ran during halftime of the Super Bowl.

I think it’s pretty effective.

Looks like Clint Eastwood got under Obama’s skin.

Obama sent this tweet today in response to Eastwood mocking Obama last night by using an empty chair as a prop (via The Rhetorican):

While I was very uncertain whether the Eastwood appearance worked, I now believe it did.
