So, I was writing a couple days ago about McCain’s supposedly huge gaffe, and I must make a correction. I thought that the crucial line was when the interviewer said “I’m talking about Europe, the president of Spain” and he replied “What about him? what?”

But I was listening to it again today cuz I’m gonna use it in one of my classes tomorrow and I realized I heard wrong. He responds “What about me? What?” He obviously thought the interviewer said “you” instead of “Europe.” (Which, listening to her pronunciation, makes total sense). So that throws (at least part of) my theory out the window!!! Oops. :p
