(Newser) – Jon Stewart took on the Lance Armstrong doping confession last night in a hilarious segment that also included a bit of riffing on Oprah Winfrey. "Lance Armstrong was doping? Of course he was doping! It's so obvious," Stewart said. "You can beat testicular cancer. You can win the Tour de France. But you can't win the Tour de France seven times after beating testicular cancer. Or vice versa."

He went on to observe that "any idiot with half a brain should've been able to see Armstrong was lying" before cutting to a 2006 interview of himself interviewing Armstrong while defending his clean record. "Hello! Nailed it again," Stewart said. "You know what, for as good at interviewing as I am, I would not be surprised if Armstrong was also banging David Petraeus."

The thing is, he was still the best. All riders are doping, the officials are corrupt. He only got busted because his team mates ratted him out. All of the "best" athletes get there by sneaking around laws and using non-banned substances, and finding natural enhancing "drugs" like geranium .. until they too get banned.
