“Lance Armstrong’s “confession” has to be the most overhyped story of this decade, which is saying a lot. Aside from the fact that this was a train that you saw coming in slow motion from 50 miles away, the Lance Armstrong who manipulated the world for 15 years with his doping is now scheming to manipulate the world with his apology. The day that Lance Armstrong does something that isn’t all about Lance Armstrong will be the day we know that he actually, truly, is sorry.”
I never bought into the whole Lance Armstrong as God motif that so many people did. In fact, over the years, the more press he garnered the more repulsive I found him, regardless of his athletic accomplishments..
And when people like Oprah were singing his praises for beating cancer I allowed to cross my mind the truly uncharitable though that, “He probably got cancer from all the drugs he did.”
Anyway, I always figured him for a douchebag — and he is. And if you need any further proof of his douchebaggery then all you need to know is that he’s announcing to the world what the entire fucking world knew already and he’s doing it in an interview with Oprah — one of the world’s biggest narcissistic assholes.
The Oprah admission is just the precursor to the roll-out for his new tell-all biography.
Count on it.
Here’s Jon Stewart.
