Tears of Stress, not Contrition

I don't buy the tears. Lisa Raitt has been under a lot of pressure and her political career is in jeopardy.

Of course, she was sincere when she talked about how cancer touched her own family, but I don't buy her sincerity when she expressed remorse for her insensitive words.

Mix the stress of the last several weeks and days (and coming ones) with past memories and ipso facto, you get tears. Those tears shed by Raitt were for herself, not for the people she hurt.
