Ahh, Ozzie Guillen, you always make such good copy

Ozzie Guillen in a subscriber-only interview for (which is why I haven't read the whole thing), unloads on Alex Rodriguez for his dithering about which team to play for in the WBC.

"I hate hypocrites: He's full of [expletive]," Guillen told Sports Illustrated. "The Dominican team doesn't need his ass. It's the same with [Nomar] Garciaparra playing for Mexico. Garciaparra only knows Cancun because he went to visit."

Interestingly, Guillen portrayed himself as a close friend of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, but became a naturalized U.S. citizen this winter. And it's not as if Chavez and George Bush are going to be hanging out together at any of the WBC contests. Although if they did, I would really like to be sitting in between them.

If you locked them in a room together, Bush and Chavez might eventually find common ground discussing their shared interests in baseball, oil, and religion.
If you locked Bush and Chavez in a room with Ozzie, they'd more quickly find common ground wishing Guillen would shut up.
