    Love the way the “O” in “SOLYNDRA” looks like a fallen angel’s halo. A prophetic depiction of Obama’s political demise? We can hope.

    But you must admit, Pseud, that a half a billion taxpayer dollars can buy you some very lovely signage.

    It wasn’t spent on landscaping.

    By the way, don’t think I don’t know that an empty chair among barren landscaping in front of a big, beautiful sign of a now-bankrupt solar company that sucked hundreds of millions of dollars out of taxpayers’ pockets on the strength of a political connection with the president of the United States isn’t racist. I know a dog whistle when I hear it.

    When you eat dog, you have to be careful you don’t swallow the whistle too.

    That one almost made me spew my morning beverage all over my laptop.

    The ‘O’ looks rather surprised. Shocked, in fact.

    Psued -you’re outdoing yourself !

    If the chair hanging out of the chopper on Lucianne is fake, then this is the best one. Otherwise, a darned honorable runnerup.

    I’m the hardest working composite pseudonym in show business.

    There’s no skin in this game.

    Did anyone else read this today? It kind of reminds me of that “O” in the Solyndra sign… maybe that’s where Planned Parenthood got their inspiration?

    Thank you it really “chaired” me up.

    A lot can be done with this meme.

    Empty Chair Empty Factory Empty Promises Empty Suit Empty Recovery I wonder how long this will last.

    I like it.

    But I have a question.  The post says “one hour ago” but the first comment appears to be from “Eight hours ago.”    How does that work?

    This means it got “downgraded” to the Main Feed so it started an hour ago there.

    And oh happy day, it only cost us, the taxpayers, $535 billion to make this photo possible.

    Is that what the empty suit now occupying his not yet empty chair in the White House meant by change we can believe in? If so I want my “fair share” of the change back.

    Understated elegance, as ever, Pseud!  <grinning from ear-to-ear>

    You rock!

    Oh, oh, oh…ow, ow, ow.

    That is a work of art, a modern contemporary installment depicting the folly of political leadership.

    Good for Clint setting such a fine example as an artist, not afraid to demonstrate his acting chops with his empty chair act, which is apparently encouraging the Artistic talent in many Americans.
