Celebrity "Relationships" - The Double Standard

I don't know who Mike Straka is, but he takes Lance Armstrong and other celebrities to task for their seemingly devil-may-care approach to relationships, as well as taking us normal folks to task for letting them get away with it:

Where was the outlash against Armstrong when he dumped his wife? There was none.
Not a peep. Why? Because he is an American hero. An "inspiration" to cancer
survivors and athletes. And then the tabloids embraced his relationship with
Crow, glossing over the fact that he was a cad. Why? Because he is a celebrity.

Good on Mr. Straka.
