RNC headline speaker

Will be Lance Armstrong.

I've been reading a bunch of political blogs, and a bunch of cycling blogs and I haven't read this anywhere, so you can report you heard it here first.

Lance Armstrong: Six time TDF winner, cancer survivor, Texan, all around blue-collar guy.

The only thing Bush is going to have to deal with is his recent divorce, but I think Lance is one of those indelible characters that you simple can't bash without looking like a total shitbag. The Dems tried it with Max Cleland, and it blew up in their faces. Lance is no politician, which makes him that much better of a candidate to speak at the convention.
