Rod Blagojevich WATCH VIDEO

Today in an interview with NBC, disgraced Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D-IL) compared himself to human rights heros Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mahatma Gandhi. Speaking to The Today Show, Blagojevich said that as the indictment became public, he “thought about Mandela, Dr. King and Gandhi and tried to put some perspective to all this.” Last week, Blagojevich compared his arrest to the attack on Pearl Harbor.

“I think that, if I were to give up and wave a white flag of surrender against some of the political shots that we’ve taken…I’m not doin’ this for naught,” Palin told ABC’s Elizabeth Vargas on being asked.
