Looks like the Tour de Lance wants to overtake the political velodrome. I love Lance, but I’d hate to see him turn into a typical scumbag politician.
Cyclist Lance Armstrong said he may have a future in politics, coyly hinting that a desire to serve may lead him to seek public office after the conclusion of his athletic career.
“If you feel like you can do the job better than people who are doing it now, and you can really make a difference, then that’s a real calling to serve, and I think you have to do that,” Armstrong said in an interview with The Daily Beast. “So, there will come a time, or not, that I say to myself, ‘You know what, I can help affect change.’ And if that day comes, then absolutely.”
Dude, a three-year old chimpanzee could do a better job than most American politicians. You’re probably over-qualified!
Armstrong is making his second comeback bid to win the Tour de France, but has been politically involved over the years, having cycled with President George W. Bush, and previously indicating he may be interested in running for governor of Texas. (H/T - The Hill)
Sorry Lance, but you have stated many times that you are an atheist. And while there is nothing wrong with that, per se, it does mean that Richard Simmons has a better chance of being elected governor of Texas than you do.
I’m just sayin’.
