5 communicators we couldn't bear

1 Scott Boras
By announcing that his client Alex Rodriguez would opt out of his contract during the World Series, Boras took greed to a new level.

2 Fred Thompson
A campaign that was supposed to light a fire under the GOP has not excited anyone.

3 John "Pat" Philbin

4 Hugo Chavez
Being belligerent in front of the UN and being told to shut up by the King of Spain didn't help his international respectability any.

5 John Mackey
Apparently, the CEO of Whole Foods never got the transparency memo. In July, he was caught posting to the comments section of the company Web site's blog using a pseudonym.
