Quote of the Day: Venezuelan Blogger to Jimmy Carter

Saturday, March 1, 2014
Please, desist from your trip: you have absolutely no credibility in Venezuela... I can assure you that half of the country has no respect for you and the other half thinks you are a mere fool that they can use and discard as needed. I think that not only you should desist from your trip, but should never mention us again. You have cursed us enough as it is. We will appreciate your future silence since nothing good ever comes from your statements on Venezuela. Worry not, I am sure we will find more worthy mediators.
-- Daniel Duquenal, Venezuelan blogger, in a open letter to former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, who recently invited himself to (once again) "mediate" the South American nation's conflict, 2/26/14
