Piazza Makes Me Wanna Hurl

And no, I'm not talking about his abysmal stats this season, or the fact that he looks about as comfortable at the plate as Rey Ordonez. Rather, our .250-hitting catcher had this to say yesterday:

Mike Piazza, who was not in the starting lineup, spent his free time getting a baseball autographed by the radio commentator Rush Limbaugh. "It was like meeting George Washington," Piazza said.

What an utterly idiotic thing to say. I'm not carping about personal politics - if you love Rush, more power to ya. But jeez, I've fucking met Al Franken, and I sure as hell wouldn't compare him to George Washington. More like driving over the George Washington Bridge, only a little funnier. Has Piazza gone nuts? Yeesh.
