Electrical contractor Lorne McCandlish says he plans to keep this plastic deck chair — representing President Barack Obama — flying from his shop’s flagpole until Obama leaves office. McCandlish, 63, hoisted the chair in protest at his GS Center Road office shortly after the president’s Nov. 6 re-election, along with another chair on the 65-foot flagpole at his home. The “empty chair” meme derives from Clint Eastwood’s speech at the Republican National Convention, where the actor addressed a chair as if it were Obama. People sometimes stop, take pictures and discuss the sight with McCandlish. “The symbol is the empty chair, the lack of leadership,” he said.
