Seriously:

Illinois’ embattled but defiant governor turned to the history books to describe the emotional strain on him and his family, comparing his arrest last month to Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor.

“Dec. 9 to my family, to us, to me, is what Pearl Harbor Day was to the United States,” Gov. Rod Blagojevich told The Associated Press in an interview Thursday. “It was a complete surprise, completely unexpected. And just like the United States prevailed in that, we’ll prevail in this.”

Blagojevich went on to describe his 1983 graduation from Pepperdine as being “remarkably similar to the ratification of the Constitution.” Of his efforts to secure the release of three Americans from Yugoslavia in 1999, he added that the experience allowed him some insight into how Lincoln felt after issuing the Emancipation Proclamation. And when conversation shifted to the topic of the governor’s first hand job, he spent fifteen minutes recounting the story of Lord Krishna’s revelation of the Bhagavad Gita to Arjuna.
