Blago: My Arrest Was Like Pearl Harbor

You’ve got to hand it to Rod Blagojevich — he really does have a way with words, and with placing his story into the great American narrative.

“December 9 to my family, to us, to me, is what Pearl Harbor Day was to the United States,” Blago told the Associated Press. “It was a complete surprise, completely unexpected. And just like the United States prevailed in that, we’ll prevail in this.”

In the immortal words of U.S. Senator John “Bluto” Blutarsky: “Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!”
