Getting all Off Piste

UPDATE: BLANK SPOTS (NOW OCCUPIED BY “CENSORED” PHOTO) IN THE POSTS ARE DUE TO THREATENING NOTIFICATION THAT I CANNOT DISPLAY ANY OF THE COPYRIGHTED PHOTOS TAKEN BY CHRIS COUNCIL HERE OR IN THE Snow Queen Cometh: Home POST. SO JUST USE YOUR IMAGINATION! THAT’S USUALLY BETTER ANYWAY. OR, CLICK HERE OR ON THE CENSORED PICS TO SEE THEM ON THE AP SITE!

An InstaPundit reader in Aspen emails: “The Obamas are doing everything they can to be invisible in Aspen. If you didn’t know they were here, you wouldn’t know. It’s clear their press operation fears more of the Michelle Antoinette meme leaking out.” [ed. apparently “everything” now includes censoring bloggers who don’t appear to be on the team]

Leave it to the Daily Mail to find a way to sneak around our photo embargo and do the work our own MSM was too busy to do (covering Whitney’s funeral). Here they report on Lady M’s skiing ability:

(CENSORED AP photos can be seen here or click on the former images)

That’s a nice wedgie! Lady M is a natural at keeping her feet apart!

Once we learn how to control that center of gravity, it will be straight downhill!

And our own Granny Jan got an exclusive CENSORED!

We’re starting out on some gentle terrain, and later today will be moving on to the off piste jumping. (However, the photo embargo will be stringently enforced for the rest of the trip, to protect the rest of the skiers. From the photographers.) By then we will have worked up quite an appetite for the post lunch apr├Ęs ski pre dinner snack.

You maybe expected Big Guy to join us yesterday as Air Force Won flew right over Colorado on it’s way back from the California gold rush. Butt alas! Washington calls.

Plus, Big Guy thought he might have picked up a cold on his hectic West Coast trip where he managed to jam in about a gazillion fundraisers along with his many official appearances.

The last leg of the trip included a visit to the Boeing plant in Seattle where they build the original Dreamliner:

No, I mean the 787:

barrys dreamYou’re kidding!? You cram how many seats in here?

He spoke to the troops, praising them and their co-workers in the South Carolina factory his NLRB nearly closed down ( by accident or something) a couple of months ago. He told them that he was there “to sell stuff.” Which I think was pretty obvious.

Then it was on to Medina, WA. In the rain.

Butt when it rains, it still pours around here.

Here at an “unscheduled” stop, Big Guy totally knocks Medina Elementary School principal Beth Hamilton off her feet. So don’t tell me America’s not still in love with the Won.
