Okay, the English version of the interview makes it clear that my hypothesis that McCain just didn’t know that Zapatero was Prime Minister of Spain is wrong, the interviewer specifically tries to draw his attention back to Spain and Europe, and McCain insists on giving irrelevant answers about Mexico:

You don’t expect a presidential candidate to have an elaborate “Spain policy” or anything, but Spain is a fellow democracy, a member of NATO and the EU, etc. It would be very strange for the United States to have anything other than a close relationship with Spain.
