Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

I saw the idea on Facebook last night, and this morning John Hawkins directed me to the ever-growing thread at Legal Insurrection.
Today is the impromptu National Empty Chair Day, which I covered on Saturday night when a reader alerted me to the idea. At the time there were about a half dozen tweets from @YouTooCongress, but little other attention.
Through the efforts of Prof. Glenn Reynolds, Michael Patrick Leahy of Breitbart.com, Michelle Malkin, Twitchy, and many others in the right blogosphere, National Empty Chair Day has spread far and wide in about 24 hours.
Here's my humble contribution.
Tammy invited a few friends over for a barbecue this afternoon. Let's see if anyone notices the empty chair on our front lawn. I'll update this post with their reactions.
And in case you missed last year's Labor Day post — A liberal explains Labor Day: If you're not pro-union, you're pro-slavery. I suspect it'll be a recurring theme in Charlotte this week.
UPDATE 04 Sep 2012 10:03:
Reactions? Muted. Most of our guests didn't notice the chair. Or ignored it.
But those that did overwhelmingly liked the statement it made. Yup, here in the heart of Blue Jersey, where the Obamabot gene is implanted while still in the womb, Clint Eastwood's mockery struck a chord.
Most telling? Nobody stuck up for Barry. At barbecues this weekend there was zero enthusiasm for Dear Leader. He wasn't a topic of discussion. But Clint Eastwood was! Almost everyone had something to say about him, if not direct praise, then a grudging respect.
Contrast with four years ago when Obama-fever was rampant and everyone was high on Hopium. Back then a McCain - Palin sign got me ridicule, bordering on shunning. Today, it's quite clear that Barry's lost his mojo.
So as DaTechGuy says, "Ride right through 'em, they're as demoralized as hell!"
