Bolivia: Some dude called Jimmy Carter went to Santa Cruz yesterday to talk peace and reconciliation with the local leaders. If by some miracle this story makes it to Fox News it’ll be via some snickering conversation about do-gooders. Can’t sell guns if people don’t wanna kill each other, right guys?

Truly embarrassing that AP’s LatAm coverage gets taken seriously.
