The "crazy uncle in the basement" syndrome.

Well, this is a bit of a twist. Even wingnuts can appreciate when they're just a bit too wingnutty for the general public:

Saskatoon MP Maurice Vellacott has penned an open letter to Stephen Harper asking for a "modest" role in his new Conservative government...

He also says he's concerned that if he were appointed to a senior cabinet role, he would be prevented from speaking his mind on certain issues, such as "ethnic outreach, marriage, family and life."

In short, Vellacott is an avowed opponent of same-sex marriage, and I can only presume he wants to remain below the radar so he can continue to be an ignorant dumbfuck on the subject without embarrassing his party.

I can't wait to see this government in action.
