Finally, A President Willing To Stand Up To Spain

Thank God we finally have a presidential candidate willing to stand up to Spain. Yesterday, McCain boldly and maverickly told a reporter he would not be talking to Spain.
During an interview in Miami earlier this week with Spanish-language station Union Radio, a reporter asked McCain whether, if elected, he would receive Zapatero in the White House. McCain answered, "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."
Fuck yeah. I'm very, very tired of Spain always trying to hurt the United States and everyone just sitting on their asses. And I want a president who doesn't even know where Spain is.
McCain got confused about the fact that Spain is a country in Europe, rather than a rogue state in Latin America.
Well, who wouldn't, with a name like "Spain?" Seriously, they should have just called the place "Terrorist." Today, McCain foreign policy adviser Randy Sheunemann decided the best way to handle this situation was to agree with what McCain said.

"The questioner asked several times about Senator McCain's willingness to meet Zapatero (and id'd him in the question so there is no doubt Senator McCain knew exactly to whom the question referred). Senator McCain refused to commit to a White House meeting with President Zapatero in this interview."

Oh, good. We thought McCain was confused and accidentally lumped Spain in with Cuba and Venezuela, but it turns out you went with a worse version. In your version, Spain is our enemy, like Iran.

Oh, and "Mr. Foreign Policy adviser," Zapetero is not "president" of Spain. He's the Prime Minister. But keep up the advising, you're doing a great job.

Nice work, all around.
