McCain confuses Zapatero with Zapata

Oh, those Spanish names – so confusing, they sound so much alike…

1. John McCain says in an interview with a Spanish-language radio station that, when asked if he would sit down with Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Zapatero, he will continue to work with Latin American leaders [sic] and that he would stand up against those who would do harm to the United States [sic]. Everyone is confused as to what the hell he is talking about.

2. On Tuesday, McCain tells Katie Couric that his favorite movie is Viva Zapata! The movie is about Emiliano Zapata, a Mexican (Latin American) revolutionary who fought for peasant rights and land redistribution (what a Republican would surely consider as ideas that would do harm to the United States).
