Al Gore and George W. Bush riding hand-in-hand down Okeechobee Boulevard in November 2000 to protest hanging chads. Something in that vein happened in yesterday's Haitian election, which went just about as badly as anyone could have expected.
Baker sent outa tweet

, infrastructure problems, and the cholera crisis.
