OK, we debated whether or not to post this. Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner’s infamous tweet while in China is so offensively racist and crude that we discussed whether it was appropriate for LatinAmericaGoesGlobal.org.

He who laughs last, we guess, laughs the loudest, even in Beijing.
