Entertainment: The Great Divide.

I just read an article about the Lance/Sheryl breakup. Now I'm not into the whole eXTRA and Entertainment Tonight smut, but I thought this was a great example of the political divide in our country.

"Lance Armstrong and Sheryl Crow Break Up Over George W. Bush?"
By James Hirsen

As is often the case when celebrity couples part company, there has been an enormous amount of press coverage concerning the Lance Armstrong/Sheryl Crow split. But the Star is reporting a possible political cause for the engagement halt. There's speculation that the root of the rift may have to do with President Bush. No, Crow doesn't have a crush on the prez. Quite the contrary. The singer has been public about her opposition to Bush's policies.
Many of us have a less than fond remembrance of her highly visible, much discussed "War Is Not the Answer" T-shirt.
Well, it turns out that Armstrong is actually a Bush backer. The famed cyclist went biking with the commander in chief last summer. According to a friend of Crow, Armstrong was a Bush backer to the max.
"Sheryl said Lance didn't just support Bush, - he'd go off and fight if the president asked him to," the friend said.

Just another reason to like the single greatest athlete in the world.

Another reason to like Lance?

What - leaving his wife (who stood by him through cancer) and kids for Sheryl Crow wasn't reason enough to hold him up as a super role model?

You want the truth? YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!

2) the cool yellow wrist band things

i love the guy as an athlete, but as MAX POWER put it, i'm not that fond of him as a role model on the moral grounds, not that i expect him to be one anyways. i wish i had his powers though... not his brain. but, viva le BUSH.
