"Whatever" I thought, he's been saying that for forever. Then I clicked the link and found a few lines to warm any Democrat's heart. Visions of yellow and blue campaign stickers will dance in your head:
I need your help.
At a time when cancer affects more and more Americans, Congress is poised to vote on a proposal that could slow down the fight against this killer disease. For the first time in more than a decade, we may see cuts in cancer research funding.
I hope those Lance Armstrong junkies are doing their math when they read that.
What? I thought the free market handled things like this best. "Increased Federal funding" sure isn't a phrase I've heard any Republicans use in a long time (except for abstinence-only education which is proven to be ineffective if not counter-effective).
Note the broad and ambiguous definition of cuts he requires a "no" vote for. He's not exactly showing a concern for cutting government to the size that "it can be drowned in a bathtub"
Considering further evidence, I feel safe in saying that Ladies and Gentlemen, Lance Armstrong is a Democrat.
So, he's clearly got an interest in politics (although also clearly doesn't want to run anytime soon). But what to make of his choice of the Governorship as opposed to a Senate seat? Cancer funding is obviously his main concern and couldn't he do more about that in the Senate? Is he just angling straight up to the Presidency right away?
