Gun Control: Progressive hypocrisy or "expert testimony?" Son of Gun Control Task Force Member Convicted Of Planning School Shooting

Lance Armstrong Will Ask Oprah for Absolution, Forgiveness in Interview | Showbiz411

This is disgusting. A cheater who represented the United States of America is asking for absolution from a celebrity? Here is a man who has disgraced himself, his nation and his sport by his outrageous behavior. He has had any number of “official” chances to admit wrongdoing – and yet he persisted in his lies. And instead of shutting up – he appears to be attempting to further monetize his career by media rehabilitation, probably to be followed by a tell-all book and a television or theatrical movie release.

Disgusting …

Lance Armstrong Will Ask Oprah for Absolution, Forgiveness in Interview

Lance Armstrong has decided to come clean, so to speak. Since the big dope’s life is essentially ruined, he’s apparently going to admit it all and ask for forgiveness. And who better to give it to him that Oprah? She’s got him on January 17 from 9 to 10:30pm on the hard to find OWN channel. Good for her. It used to be that celebrities went to Larry King or Barbara Walters when they needed to eat crow publicly and return to the world.

But for this generation it’s Oprah. Lance will cry, his eyes will  well up when he talks about his kids, he’ll show Oprah his scars from various surgeries, and recommend a healing expert in Nepal which she’ll put on her next Best Things list.

Will she grant him absolution? I hope not. But Armstrong has nothing to lose–he’s lost everything. He deceived the world for years, and kept lying about it. He had plenty of chances to explain himself. I don’t care if he came from a broken home, was beaten with a bat, or made to wash the dishes. Maybe this will be the last time we’ll have to hear from him. Source: Lance Armstrong Will Ask Oprah for Absolution, Forgiveness in Interview | Showbiz411

Bottom line …

It is not that I deny Lance Armstrong personal forgiveness or absolution, I would like to deny him national absolution for making a mockery of our Nation’s pride on the world stage. Allowing our enemies to point to Armstrong and say “America cheats to win.” Unacceptable.

Who knows, maybe he can make a large contribution to the progressive democrat party, get Oprah to introduce him to Reverends Sharpton and Jackson – and then have Obama pardon him for the fraud he committed on the American people – and the government who sponsored his activities.

I would prefer he take his ill-gotten gain and slink off to the Texas badlands where he should not be allowed to compete against honest athletes anywhere or at anytime.
