Lynching Invisible Obama

Lynching Invisible Obama

Some creep in Texas lynched an empty chair from a tree in his yard, an act presumably meant to mirror Clint Eastwood's RNC conversation with Obama. We're not sure what to say about this, or whether there is any earthly reason to show it, except that it and a lot of other ugliness like it is out there, and ignoring it doesn't make it go away, and maybe calling it out might help to. Or not. The homeowner, Republican Bud Johnson, won "Yard of the Month" in August 2010.

"I don't really give a damn whether it disturbs you or not. You can (go) straight to hell and take Obama with you. I don't give a shit. If you don't like it, don't come down my street." - Bud Johnson.
