Could 'Empty Chair Day' be bellwether for November election?

It's a good problem over at Le-gal In-sur-rec-tion where William Jacobson had tens of thousands of hits on his post about today's "National Empty Chair Day" including Drudge. It crashed his server for a bit but he's back up and running so slide on over and read "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Chairs."

Throughout the country, folks sent photos of their empty chairs -- lawn chairs, folding chairs, camping chairs, wicker chairs, office chairs, stools. On Facebook and Twitter -- #emptychairday, the chair photos and posts continued as an idea that wasn't even formulated a short three days ago caught fire and spread practically overnight throughout the country. Mr. Jacobson wrote:
Wow. Just Wow at the reaction. I never imagined that Empty Chair Day would sweep the nation, take over Twitter, make its way to the banner headline at Drudge and stories at The Wall Street Journal and elsewhere. (added) Michael Patrick Leahy has details on the press coverage and how even the DNC was infiltrated.
Could National Empty Chair Day be a bellwether for the November election? Stay tuned....
