Zapatero who?

We can stop worrying about Sarah Palin’s lack of foreign policy expertise.

That’s because it’s time to start worrying about John McCain’s lack of foreign policy expertise.

In an interview with a Spanish radio network, McCain seemed unaware that José Luis Zapatero is prime minister of Spain, and apparently thought he was the leader of some possibly-hostile Latin American country.

Instead of doing the sensible thing and claiming that McCain misunderstood the questions about Zapatero, his campaign insists that he knew perfectly well what he was talking about.
