Who's the idiot who approved these ads? ..... Oops!

From the CBC we get this little gem

On Wednesday night, Liberal incumbent Keith Martin apologized at an all-candidates debate in the Victoria suburb of Colwood. He told the crowd the ad was a gross error that does not represent the Liberals' view of the military.

He said the ad was one of a series of 12 and it should never have been released.

"Some idiot went and sent it out with the other 11 ads, and it was never sanctioned by the party, never approved, and we are completely appalled that this went out. We apologize to the men and women in the uniform," he said.

And then we have this from the CTV:

"In an interview Thursday morning on CTV's Canada AM, Martin said he approved every one of the harshly critical ads -- including one that suggested the Tory Leader would use the military to occupy Canadian cities."

Did Keith Martin just call Paul Martin an idiot? I don't remember Keith being that critical of the Liberals when he was with the Reform party.

What fun!
