Spain / Mexico - Sunni/Shia - fundamentals/foundering - experience/ignorance - shit/Shinola

Does McCain have a clue? I mean, really?

While speaking with a Spanish reporter he seemed unclear on who Prime Minister Zapatero of Spain was and that Spain is not part of Latin America. Not too sure who America's friends or foes are either.

Read about it here.

As John Aravosis says: "This isn't funny. It's actually quite serious. We may have the first evidence, on tape, that McCain's age, or illness, or both are catching up with him and he's losing his mental faculties."

Although he was fifth from the bottom of his class, I do not believe McCain is stupid. I do suspect he is ignorant. I know he is mendacious. There is no doubt he is unprincipled. And I fear he is well on his way into senility.

Great: more Bush with a degenerating mental capacity. And Scary Sarah in the wings.

Libera nos, Domine.

Steve Benen at Political Animal/Washington Monthly, quoted at Americablog:
Let's also not lose sight of the broader pattern. McCain thinks the recent conflict between Russia and Georgia was "the first probably serious crisis internationally since the end of the Cold War." He thinks Iraq and Pakistan share a border. He believes Czechoslovakia is still a country. He's been confused about the difference between Sudan and Somalia. He's been confused about whether he wants more U.S. troops in Afghanistan, more NATO troops in Afghanistan, or both. He's been confused about how many U.S. troops are in Iraq. He's been confused about whether the U.S. can maintain a long-term presence in Iraq. He's been confused about Iran's relationship with al Qaeda. He's been confused about the difference between Sunni and Shi'ia. McCain, following a recent trip to Germany, even referred to "President Putin of Germany." All of this incoherence on his signature issue.
