Lisa Raitt tries to salvage the situation:
An emotional Natural Resources Minister Lisa Raitt apologized on Wednesday for referring to the medical isotopes shortage as a "sexy" problem that she could take credit for fixing.
OK, that's good, it's what we've been waiting for, so maybe we can forgive and forget and ... oh, fuck, what's this?
Raitt fought back tears in front of reporters in Ottawa as she recounted her experience as a child, helping care for her father for 18 months before he died of colon cancer when she was 11.
Twenty years later, she said, she was "in the room" when her 36-year-old brother died of lung cancer.
EPIC FAIL! It's not about you, you dimbulb! No one gives a crap about your lameass excuses, or how tough life was for you. Your job was to apologize and get on with it, not launch into a tear-jerker to suck up for sympathy.
She had her chance. She pooched it. End of story.
