 Monday ~ Empty Chair Day

We own this country . . . Politicians are employees of ours . . . And when somebody does not do the job, we’ve got to let them go.”  –Clint Eastwood


Here are some more thoughts on the Empty Chair from the Temple of Mut, the empty chair has become a Tweet hashtag, followed by photo of an empty chair:

#InsertChair – Obama Now Identified as “Empty Seat” through Eastwood Magic

August 31, 2012 by mutnodjmet13

Dear Readers:  The ultra-liberal, ex-hippie Divine Mother left town today, so this afternoon was the first opportunity to savor some of the Alinksy-tactic goodness now being utilized by RomneyRyan2012.  I had only heard a few comments about Clint Eastwood’s speech last night — but the lefty derision and snark clued me in that Eastwood’s remarks had put a big Daisy-cutter into the heart various media narratives.

Eastwood did not receive Oscars for Unforgiven or Million Dollar Baby by being stupid about either messaging or imagery.  He had to know exactly how the teleprompter-in-front-of-empty-chair would be taken by the audience last night.  There is no political consultant out there who could have come-up with this brilliance.

    B.O. is exhibiting serious memory deficits. He seems to have completely forgotten that he said that if he didn’t turn the economy around he should be a 0ne Term President. On second thought, perhaps he is working on a real September Surprise a la LBJ. Wouldn’t that be a shocker, if he declined the nomination at the convention!
