Man Lynches "Invisible Obama"

Last week, 73-year-old Bud Johnson of Texas spurred controversy for hanging an empty chair, meant to represent an invisible President Obama, from a tree in his yard. Johnson said the display was in reference to Clint Eastwood's bizarre conversation with an empty chair at the Republican National Convention, but told a local news station, "It has nothing to do with lynching anybody.”
