Update on the First Lady's outrageous vacation.....
Michele Obama Skiing, Eating Kid-Grown Veggies In Vail

Michelle Obama's press secretary said the first lady and daughter, Sasha, 9, and Malia, 12, were on a private family ski trip to Colorado, with several close family friends. She said personal expenses are being paid for by the Obamas.
...
The first lady ate at Restaurant Kelly Liken in Vail Village on Saturday night, dining on a pickled pumpkin salad with arugula and a braised ancho-chile short rib with hominy wild mushrooms and sauteed kale, according to the Vail Daily.

The newspaper said the vegetables came from the greenhouse at Brush Creek Elementary School in Eagle as part of a program to teach students to grow and harvest their own food.

I don't know, there are presumably all sorts of eating restrictions already at state dinners, what with kosher/halal/whatever.

I think the real "eat what they offer you" tests come a little further down the food chain, when you're a flunky meeting with some tribal boss up-country.

The wingnuts aren't sure what to think. The only thing they're certain about is Obama is fucking it up....

"Our Peace Prize-winning president is very busy bowing these days to kings. He is bending down to dictators, and he is brown-nosing the elites that are in Europe, and he's babying the jihadists who are following Sharia-compliant terrorism. He is callow and confused and inconsistent in his response to the Egyptian crisis, and to the uprisings in Iran, and to the terrorist threats. And he's accomplishing something nobody thought even possible: He's making Jimmy Carter look like a Rambo tough-guy."

Not if you don't cook it that much.

Here's one recipe :

* 4 pounds peeled and diced pumpkin
* 5 cups white sugar
* 5 cups distilled white vinegar
* 4 cinnamon sticks
* 15 whole cloves

Directions

1. Place the pumpkin in a large, deep bowl.
2. In a large saucepan, mix the sugar, vinegar, cinnamon sticks and cloves. Boil 5 minutes. Pour the hot liquid over the pumpkin in the bowl. Cover and set aside 8 hours, or overnight.
3. Strain the liquid into a large saucepan. Boil 5 minutes. Remove the cinnamon sticks and cloves, leaving a few bits for decoration. Place the pumpkin back into the liquid and return to boiling. Boil 5 minutes, or until pumpkin is transparent but crisp. Allow the mixture to cool. Transfer to sterile jars and refrigerate.

From some of the recipes I just checked, it sounds as though you pickle it without cooking, like cucumbers, so it retains its shape and crispness.

Haven't seen any evidence here if that advice is being followed that it works, that's all. It's just, look it folks, leaders lead. They can sit up there, they demand we do this and demand we do this and demand we do that, but show us. Poor kids are living in food deserts, parents are unemployed, kids got no place to go other than the mall, hang around for scraps at the Orange Julius place, maybe get some papaya juice out there, and then they hear about Michelle My Belle and the kids 1,500 calories per rib serving -- 141 grams of fat, I'm just saying. Mom and dad unemployed, kids in the food court hoping for some drips of papaya juice and there they are eating ribs, skiing in Vail.

Rush...um...how can I say this?

Since when did the likes of you start worrying about FOOD DESERTS, and how loudly would you have laughed at those poor kids trying to live on papaya juice if a Republican were in the White House, you bizarre man?
