Blago Yesterday: Nothing But Sunshine Hanging Over Me

Dec 9, 2008 12:20pm

"I should say if anybody wants to tape my conversations, go right ahead, feel free to do it," said the Democratic Governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich, in a pres conference yesterday, the day before his arrest.

"I appreciate anybody who wants to tape me openly and notoriously, and those who feel like they want to sneakily and wear taping devices, I would remind them that it kind of smells like Nixon and Watergate…

"But I don’t care whether you tape me privately or publicly," Blago went on, "I can tell you that whatever I say is always lawful and things I’m interested in doing are always lawful and if there are any things out there like that, what you’ll hear is a governor who is tirelessly and endlessly figures out ways to help average, ordinary working people…

"You might hear a couple of words that you might not hear publicly, but those are only adjectives to describe maybe some of you… There are probably a lot of discussions about the Cubs, and some of my ideas on what they ought to do in the off season, but you know, this is America, you know, and I appreciate if you want to tae my conversations, give me a heads up and let me know…

"I don’t believe there’s any cloud that hangs over me, I think there’s nothing but sunshine hanging over me," he said.
