D. Patrick on D. Patrick

I've been meaning to make fun of Indy Car driver Danica Patrick for a while now, mainly because of her ridiculous sponsorship deal with the web registration site Who is advising Patrick that she should be doing these low-brow ads, even as she shills for Samsonite luggage? It just doesn't make any sense.

But now she's gone and done something I can admire, which is give an honest answer to a journalist. According to the enjoyable Gawker property Jalopnik, Danica Patrick was surprisingly candid when asked by Dan Patrick, "If you could take a performance-enhancing drug and not get caught, would you do it if it allowed you to win Indy?"

Her answer: "Well, then it's not cheating, is it? If nobody finds out?"

Not bad, but she's still only my second-favorite Danica.

What sort of performancing-enhancing drug helps a driver, anyway? I usually rely on a Diet Coke and a Snickers when I'm on a long drive.

Lead Foot pills would be my guess. And just for good measure, an analgesic for the part of your brain that tells you what you are doing is likely to kill you.
