In Austin, that bastion of Texas liberalism, a homeowner hung an empty chair from a tree branch in his yard. He was a previous winner of the “Yard of the Month” award from a homeowners association. When asked about the none-too subtle implication the President Obama should be lynched, the homeowner replied , "I don't really give a damn whether it disturbs you or not. You can take [your concerns] and 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."
Let’s string up an empty chair
I know it’s racist – I don’t care
My speech in this here country’s free
So I can say what pleases me
And if some take it the “wrong” way
That’s exactly what I mean to say.
