NOW THAT'S going to be fun to watch: notoriously anti-religious (except Islam, as all good leftists) Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, Spain's PM, has been invited to the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, next February 4.

He seems not too comfortable with the situation, if only because he's being mocked for it all over the country this morning after papers ran the information. So much that, even though he had got the invitation days ago, he didn't disclose it: he was merely planning a trip to DC, he said. It was only when new ambassador to Spain Alan Solomont allegedly had a slip of the tongue (link in Spanish) while meeting the local media for the first time since he took the ambassadorship, yesterday morning. According to press reports, Solomont later apologized to Zapatero's staff.
