I came across this item as I went through the news and e-mail. I am not much of a sports fan but every now and then an item attracts my attention. It seems that Floyd Landis, who was stripped of his 2006 Tour de France win for using performance enhancing drugs and has protested his innocence since, now says he was guilty. No surprise there. We have seen far too many of these cases. Only he is also claiming that Lance Armstrong and other top cyclers did the same. I have a quirky turn of mind on this issue. I would have much more respect for this idiot if he simply confessed and took his lumps but he seems to want a whole lot of company on his way down. That is the very essence of a scum bag.
I find this story both amusing and sad. A 'family-values' Republican Representative from New York whose DUI arrest 2 years ago led to the discovery of his mistress and 'love child' and his resignation has been selected as the Republican candidate for that same House seat by the Republican executive. By a resounding 2-4. This is really the best candidate they can field??
