Yes, there are wackos on the left as well as the right, but…

… those on the right sure as hell seem to be coming out of the woodwork more often these days.

We in Canada have the pride of Saskatchewan, Conservative MP Maurice Vellacott who thinks that rewarding and praising women who are clearly part of the lunatic fringe and even more clearly, convicted criminal.

And meanwhile, in Illinois, batshit-crazy GOP Senate candidate, Richard Mourdock believes it is “God’s will” if a pregnancy results as a result of a rape!

Wow. That’s all I can say.

Wow.

Huh?

The robocall blame falls at the feet of Elections Canada?

Seriously?

What has this guy been smoking?

“I suspect that at the end of the day, if Elections Canada has the resources to do a proper investigation, they’ll find they’re themselves significantly responsible, that tech issues with marrying EC lists to available, electronic phone lists is part of the problem, and in a few instances there may have been malfeasance by one (political) party or the other,” wrote Vellacott.

Of course, this wacko has spoken without thinking before:

From May 2006:

Vellacott created a firestorm last weekend when he accused McLachlin of saying that when judges “step into [a judicial activist] role, all of a sudden there’s some mystical kind of power that comes over them by which everything they ever decreed is not to be questioned and they actually have these discerning and almost prophetic abilities to be able to come and know the mind of the public and they take on almost godlike powers.”

From 2005:

After Prime Minister Paul Martin announced Tuesday that Stronach was switching parties and joining his cabinet, veteran Ontario Conservative Bob Runciman called her “a dipstick – an attractive one, but still a dipstick.”

Saskatchewan Conservative MP Maurice Vellacott said “people prostitute themselves for different costs or different prices.”

Alberta Conservative Tony Abbott jumped into the debate by saying Stronach had “whored herself out for power.” On Wednesday, Abbott said he regretted his comments.

2009:

In an embarrassing turn, Saskatoon MP Maurice Vellacott publicly apologized Monday for telling New Democrat Peter Stoffer’s constituents their MP supported the long gun registry. He has been an unwavering opponent of the registry. Mr. Vellacott’s disclosure that the material was the party’s responsibility reveals that MPs names merely front party campaigns.

Yup. He’s a nutbar, alright.
