I am not usually swayed by the apologies of right wing nuts who fall off the sexual wagon. Usually you can tell that they were ready to burst trying to keep their quirky kinks or inner queer inside. Usually their apologies are nothing more than a desperate attempt to claw their way back into the "in" crowd of nutty conservatives. In Tom Foley's case I have to say that this was the most believable apology I've ever heard.

Usually the, "I was abused" card is played to shift the blame. I have a hard time believing from this video that he's doing that. He's a senator not an actor. If this were up for an academy award he would win hands down but I think that is due to sincerity more than great acting.
