Oh, boy: During an interview with the Associated Press, embattled Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich -- and "embattled" is practically his permanent salutation, displacing "the honorable" -- actually compared his arrest to the attacks on Pearl Harbor.

This guy is really, really delusional. Totally losing it . . . and I'm not talking about the governorship.
