Why Do Americans Love to Drag down Winners?

I never cared much for Lance Armstrong, but I find it extremely disturbing that America loves to discredit the winners, not only stripping them of their titles, medals and records, but actually discrediting their entire lives – which are without exception filled with dedication and hard work.  We do this with politicians, athletes, military leaders and celebrities of all sorts.  It’s disgusting.  One mistake shouldn’t strip a man of his entire life.  Everyone makes mistakes – lots of them!  Could you imagine how wonderful our society would be if we spent half that time and energy scrutinizing ourselves.
