Viva Espana!

John McCain suggests that Spain may be an enemy nation. Asked if he would receive Spanish prime minister Zapatero, McCain replied:
Honestly, I have to analyze our relationships, situations, and priorities, but I can assure you that I will establish closer relationships with our friends, and I will stand up to those who want to harm the United States.
Did he not know of Zapatero is? Is he confusing Zapatero with Chavez, of Venezuela, or Morales, of Bolivia, who have been vociferously anti-American? Does he really bear animosity toward Zapatero--with whom the Bush administration's relations have been cool--or has he just lost it? Whatever the explanation, it does not bode well for Republican hopes of cutting into the Democratic margin among Hispanic voters.
