National Empty Chair Day photo album, part II

From reader S.S.: “I think National Empty Chair Day is a great idea. Here’s mine.”

Just landed in Charlotte NC and was met with a massively overflowing email box of Empty Chair Day photos from around the country! A Politico reporter asked me why I was covering the phenomenon and why so many on the Right felt compelled today to deliver a message in support of both the event and Clint Eastwood’s AWOL Obama skit. Here’s what I said:

It’s fun. It’s funny. It’s a social media phenomenon (see here for full round-up of blog and MSM coverage and Legal Insurrection’s comprehensive coverage here).

#EmptyChairDay is a way for conservatives to stand their political ground on their own front lawns — without the mainstream media gatekeepers whitewashing and obstructing their voices out of the campaign debate like they did during the RNC.

Clint Eastwood resonated with voters outside the snotty, derisive NY-DC-Hollywood axis. He braved derision and ridicule for standing on the convention stage. Activists on the right wanted to demonstrate that their appreciation. As always, humor is the best medicine.

Without further ado, here’s round two of the National Empty Chair Day social media photo album. There are hundreds and hundreds, so I can’t reprint all of them. But this is a great, raucous representative sample. Enjoy and thanks to all who participated! Remember in November.
