I wasn't going to write another political post for a few days, but McCain keeps giving me more ammunition.
The other day he did a Spanish media radio interview and was asked about a possible meeting with the Prime Minister of Spain, Jose Zapatero. McCain seems to think that Zapatero is some sort of Latin American Banana Republic dictator, not the democratically elected leader of a NATO ally.
MCCAIN: Well again I don't, all I can tell you is that I have a clear record of working with leaders in the hemisphere that are friends with us, and standing up to those who are not, and that's judged on the basis of the importance of our relationship with Latin America, and the entire region.
QUESTION: Okay... what about Europe? I'm talking about the President of Spain.
MCCAIN: What about me what?
QUESTION: Okay... are you willing to meet with him if you are elected president?And it just goes on in that same vein for awhile...
Ok, I'm a typical American moron. I also didn't know the name of the Prime Minister of Spain. I'm not running for president or anything, but still. However, I did know that SPAIN ISN'T A PART OF LATIN AMERICA! The guy running as a "foreign policy expert" doesn't know that Spain is in Europe. Amazing.
Either way, McCain didn't seem eager to meet with Mr. Zapatero. Why? Is it because Spain is a socialist country? After bailing out AIG, isn't the United States socialist?
