And this is why we keep voting for Martin 

Canadian Politician Equates Gay Marriage With Mad Cow Disease, Accuses PM Of Racism
Here's another Conservative MP who is not quite ready for prime time. "The article, on Alberta MP Monte Solberg's website, criticizes Martin for defending gay marriage as a right under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. If Martin defends same-sex weddings as a Charter right, then an argument can be made that reopening the Canada-U.S. border to Canadian cattle is also a Charter right for farmers, Solberg suggests. 'Remember, it's all in the Charter and if you don't think so, then you can just take your hairy knuckles back to Selma, Alabama, where you obviously belong,'' he wrote." Here's the website article which this story refers to.
UPDATE: But then there's this one, too -- Liberal apologizes for suggesting Canada "embarrass" U.S. over trade. Does this leave the NDP as the only party without foot-in-mouth disease?
