I vote Francesco Francavilla for "Chair"person

Image artist: Francesco Francavilla

So I believe everyone caught the story of how Clint Eastwood basically derailed the Republic National Convention in 12 minutes. There were some very, very funny replies to him and "Eastwooding" is now an official term in the slang English language. With any luck like Sarah Palin's "refudiate" (which she invented) it might become the New Oxford dictionary's new word of the year. Visually, we have the choice between Obama's own tweet "this seat's taken" (with a photo of the president's chair from behind with his head rising above it), or this brilliant interpretation by Francesco Francavilla which goes back the famous "Hope" poster by Shepard Fairey only to replace it with.... Yes, a chair - then again a chair could perhaps is even less woody than Mitt Romney's appearances.
