      I gotta say though, regardless of how much he raises for cancer research or actually sends that way, what he has done to raise awareness is almost beyond measure.  I'd cut him a break.

      You can't spell CRAZY without R-AZ.

        ...Armstrong has been deliberately apolitical, a fact I haven't seen mentioned yet in comparisons with SGK.  

        As he has explained, cancer doesn't recognize political allegiances.  

        That said, he has described how being exposed to people from other countries has definitely broadened his horizons and world view, and he is a-religious.  If one would wonder how he votes, I think those factors would repel him from right-wing nuttery candidates.

        Livestrong stopped funding cancer research in the mid 90's.  Never gave much to research anyway.

        Read the latest story on the scam that is Livestrong in Feb. OUTSIDE magazine.....  (no wonder he's trying to cover his ^ss with this chickensh^t donation!)

        He spent $14 million  on consultants last year and $4.2 million on advertising. Not a dime went to research.   I hardly think $100,000 is enough to stand with PP.  Why "cut him a break?"
