He’s a senator. He’s privy to information that’s not available to average schmoes like you and me.
After the interviewer presses (McCain) a couple times on the point and tries to focus him on the fact that Prime Minister Zapatero isn’t from Mexico and isn’t a drug lord either McCain comes back at her saying, “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.”
Then there’s a moment of awkward pause before she says. “But what about Europe? I’m talking about the President of Spain.”
Maybe Spain has a secret plan to invade the United States — and thank goodness McCain is aware of this plan and is willing to call it out, did you ever think about that? Maybe Zapatero is not only the prime minister of Spain, but also. . . the leader of FARC. Maybe Zapatero is standing right outside your door RIGHT NOW, holding his special Spanish sword and he’s about to chop you into hundreds of little pieces, did you ever think about that?
