As believable as Clinton's "I didn't inhale."

(And I'm a Democrat that always thought that Clinton was way too moderate, just in case you were wondering.)

I hear he didn't have sex with that woman either by the way. Thank God today we have a forthright and truthful President today. And our VP's name is Dick.

God works in mysterious ways.

But we digress. Back to the Doping Control Excuses Thread, and no more diversions please.

I'm an outspoken, dissident, former KGB agent. I'm not important enough to be assassinated with polonium, so they held me hostage on the rest day and forced me to have a blood transfusion.

Last time I was in Madrid I was amazed at the amount of pro bike riders there. They were either there to a/ see Dr Fuentes, or b/ ride the worlds.

If there is one thing I hate, it is when my grandmother bakes with heroin. Pisses me off. You try finishing your meal laced with heroin.

Something people do not realize. Spain has lax doping laws compared to placed like Germany and France. It is why Contador was cleared by the Spanish judge. Not because there was no there, there, but because there was not illegality under Spanish law to the there.

Of course, the fact that he had never met any of the Puerto principals probably had something to do with it, too. (Haven't you read the statement on why he was included? It was because they recorded race results and he, like many others they didn't know, had his name in the race results. Anyone whose name was in their files, for just about any reason, was in the initial announcement.)
