Worse than Bush. There can be no doubt about it now.

In McCain’s bizarre interview with Spanish Owned Union Radio he refused to say whether he would meet with Spain’s Prime Minister, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero. Listening to the interview repeatedly, it simply seemed that McCain had no idea who Zapatero actually was. McCain seemed to think he was a Latin American autocrat – despite the reporter repeatedly saying “I am talking about Spain.” This gaffe would seem to have very significant implications. Not knowing who the leader of Spain was or thinking Spain was in Latin America would not really be shocking coming from his running mate, but McCain has run on his foreign policy expertise and such confusion completely undercuts his credibility. Furthermore this gaffe would bring up real questions about his age. Is McCain really prepared to deal with a crisis at 3AM, when he can’t even remember who the leader of Spain is during a late evening interview?  Source Article
