McCain is Losing It

The evidence from yesterday:

This video of him babbling. No coincidence, this was at an evening event -- past his bedtime.

Next, McCain was interviewed by a Spanish radio station in Miami -- the interview was conducted in English, btw -- and didn't seem to know that Spain was located in Europe, or that José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero is the Prime Minister of Spain (full disclosure, I didn't know that either, but I'm not running for President, and I wasn't being interviewed by a Spanish-language radio station! He might have wanted to bone up a little on the issues.) This is being reported as a huge gaffe in the Spanish press.

That's Mr. Foreign Policy Experience John McCain. His foreign policy seems to be about an inch thick, as deep as the foreign policy experience of his stay-at-home running mate. She can see Russia from her house, that's her foreign policy experience. As this diarist on dailykos put it, McCain's experience seems to be "I can see Spain from my house in Arizona!"
