First, #eastwooding.

Now: #emptychairday.

Inspired by Clint Eastwood’s unforgettable RNC skit, Twitter users are organizing a nationwide Empty Chair Day on Monday to pay tribute to the Absentee-In-Chief:

There’s even a theme song: “I’m Just a Chair!”

    Or leave it there until election day

    Every Republican candidate making an appearance should have an empty chair on the stage, just sitting there. Don’t say a word about it. Maybe when referencing the policies of the current administration, allow your eyes to flick over to the chair and right back. Do it at every event.

    As Alinsky said, ridicule is so potent because there is no way to refute it.

    • stuckinIL4now

      Whoa, that is such and excellent idea!

    • Joanne13

      AWESOME IDEA!!

    • RealityBitesBack

      I love it!! But, the chair thing is getting old and I think it’s going to be a tired joke by the end of the DNC.

      How about the same concept with a golf bag or a beer keg labeled “Alinsky Brewski”?

      • Netmilsmom

        The chair is easily recognizable. Add any other props you want. A friend of mine added a golf club.

      • The Monster

        How long did it take for “potatoe” to get old?
        How many Saturday nights did Chevy Chase (as Gerald Ford) fall down before that got old?
        How many bits did David Letterman do on how stupid GWB is before it got old?

        • nc

          Right you are. Or Tina Fey’s imprint of Palin in voters’ minds?

    • Brett Hoover

      How about an Etch-A-Sketch?

  • Sakemoto

    Someone, somewhere will put a potted marijuana plant on the chair. That would be a fine representation of our Dope smoking Dopey President.

    I’d use empty beer bottles, golf balls, roaches, (Both types, for vermin, and choomy creeps) a copy of rules for radicals, and flip flops!

    • calamity jane

    Talk about a hard hitting message we can send. This is a great idea!

  • Burt Zerker

    Obama’s chair will definitely be at the family barbeque tomorrow. Sorry Mr. pResident,…no dog on the menu.

    • NetAlien

      With food & drink at your barbeque, you’ll need one of these…

  • nomorebarry

    Even better Strap and empty chair on top of your car roof.

  • Janice

    Was hilarious and truthful added levity to convention as opposed to libs filled with hate and race bating. Look at the liars lined up to speak. Cutter polosi blabber mouth Schultz Biden Obama the only person missing is Pinocchio

  • JeffWRidge

    I have a chair that should work nicely to represent how Obama’s policies have effected the country. The back is broken, the legs are wobbly and the cat threw up on the seat.

    • CindyLu

      That’s awesome! You should win a prize for that one!

  • Steven

    TRANSPARENT NOT invisible that was the joke He said he would be the most TRANSPARENT president ever.

    The idea for #emptychairday began at Just One Minute by Sandy Daze, Matt and Janet. I started tweeting it last night (YoutoocongressJTW) and it went viral from there.

    Word on the Street: Disillusioned GOP delegates have launched a groundswell Write In movement to draft http://www.EastwoodChair2012.com Democrats & Independents are also joining rapidly sensing a deeper metaphorical awareness elicited by The Empty Chair. It represents the realization that candidates from either of the two parties for any office are utterly indistinguishable from imaginary people sitting in empty seats.

    Empty chair week….!!!

  • http://evilbloggerlady.blogspot.com/ Evi L. Bloggerlady

    Celebrate a diversity of empty chairs! The magic is in the “O” and also special historical proof of a connection between Barack Obama and…?

  • Brett Hoover

    In an effort to understand this, your Party made such a tremendous gaffe that it won’t post the video of Clint Eastwood’s rambling, inane speech, and now you are embracing the embarrassment. Hahaha. Good one.

  • http://crev.info/ bondmen

    How about an empty suit on an empty chair, to fill the air with a bit o’ flair?
    Though some are sure to say it is not fair!

  • stuckinIL4now

    How about declaring this Empty Chair Week? There’s all the empty chairs back in the offices of the DNC members who are in Charlotte and then there are the empty chair DNC members who are in Charlotte. I wonder how many empty chairs there will be at Bank of America Stadium on Thursday night?

    • CindyLu

      The unions will probably make sure it is filled by paying people to sit in them. And that’s no joke. You can’t expect honesty and integrity from anyone who is involved in his campaign. I’m still in shock from seeing all the people who go to his rallies and gush all over him. I didn’t realize that their were so many stupid people in the USA.
