The doping doesn't really disgust or surprise me.
Thousands of pro-cyclists have obviously done the same.
And nor does the cover-up really shock me.
After all, an ex-President of America and a cricket administration close to home have resorted to that.
What really and truly does fill me with revulsion is the extent to which Liar Armstrong, in the most cold-blooded, calculated and conniving manner, was content to wreck so many lives and the massive amounts of cash he stole at the same time.
And no cosying up to the Queen of Ratings, Oprah Winfrey has convinced me otherwise.
At the merest hint of being exposed, the sporting world's most Devious Liar of all time systematically ruined peoples' careers, credibility and peace-of-mind.
These permanently messed-up victims became a necessary part of the massive cover-up industry that Swindler Armstrong surrounded himself with.
But not once, not for a milli-second over a decade of cheating and lying, did a shred of compassion get through to Ratbag Armstrong and make him think that devastating other peoples' existences just wasn't worth it.
One of the more chilling examples of the hundreds of threats that Armstrong Inc. sent out has to be the message that delivered to Levi Leipheimer, the wife of a teammate of Armstrong's.
"Run, don't walk," was the horrifying advice that the coward gave.
Another teammate's wife, Betsy Andreu spoke of the constant onslaught on her integrity when she dared to speak out.
"Imagine the energy and the self-doubt involved, day in and day out, to defend yourself against such a powerful force that Armstrong created....all for simply telling the truth".
And then there's the cash that Con Artist Armstrong pilfered behind the deceitful veil of his supposed stupendous achievements and his supposed care for cancer sufferers.
The many millions of sponsorship dollars that came his way have played a substantial part of his 125 million dollar fortune.
Plus he amassed a King's ransom in successfully mounting libel cases like the $500,000 he received from the Sunday Times of London.
Scumbag Armstrong has only fessed up since he's been completely cornered and slippery PR merchants have told him that there's no alternative but to own up and appear to be sorry.
But no false contrition and an acutely self-serving performance in front of Oprah Winfrey has convinced me that this slime-ball deserves an ounce of sympathy or a moment of forgiveness.
More importantly, nor should anybody who has the ability to give this King of Greed a whiff of a chance of competing in any form of competitive sport ever again.
