UPDATED With Traveling Music
You probably heard that Lady M won’t be attending the China summit in California with Big Guy this weekend. The official reason is “domestic responsibilities” because this is the last week of school for the Wee Wons. That would normally mean that Friday is the last day of the school year; freeing Lady M from her “domestic responsibilities” for the weekend.
Butt as you know, we’ve redefined “normal” around here.
So, we’re not going to California this weekend, no matter what the Chinese press thinks. And they don’t think very much of it:
First lady diplomacy is also very important and the US side has failed to cooperate," he said. "According to normal diplomatic etiquette this is very strange. It shouldn't be like this.
So, hmmm, with so much on the line there must be another reason Lady M can’t make it this weekend. Oh yes, here it is:
The Chinese public had hoped that their country's first lady would dazzle the American public during this summit at the Sunnylands ranch in Palm Springs which opens on Friday and in which both sides have trumpeted as a bid to kick-start more constructive relations.
First there was the lovely Carla,
then the French Rottweiler:
And now, you expect Lady M to deal with this?
Well forget about it we’re not going there. Literally.
Lady M has no interest in being compared to another foreign cover girl.
Or another foreign folksinger:
Because, as you may recall, the lady can dance,
butt she sure can’t sing.
Big Guy is the sole repository of that talent around here.
So despite what anyone thinks, and as I mentioned, they don’t think much;
"Maybe Michelle [Obama] doesn't like - or maybe she is just really busy," Prof Zhang speculated. "But being busy shouldn't be an excuse for missing an event like this." Several leading US commentators agreed.
"This is one of the few moments during her husband's term of office where what she does matters a small amount to world politics. She should be in California." Communist Party bosses had seen the meeting as a golden opportunity to deploy Peng Liyuan's much-vaunted charms on the world stage in a bid to spin a more favourable image of China's leaders, after a decade with the stiff, protocol obsessed former president Hu Jintao in charge.
Lady M will be staying home this weekend to tend to her domestic responsibilities:
We’ve only got a month to plan for 2 month vacation on the Vineyards. Do you have any idea how many new garden frocks we need to order? How many cases of wine we have to select?
So for this weekend’s China summit, let’s leave the amateurs home to do whatever and let the pros handle the international musical intervals:
Whoops! That’s not the right pro shot! Sorry. Here we go:
