“Out of context”

Rod Blagojevich contends that the conversations the FBI recorded are being taken “out of context.” I think it’s fair to say that the “context” is the same as when any politician defends themselves from “out of context” quotations — the “context” is that he thought everyone listening would be okay with what he was saying. When you transfer it to the “context” of the general public, well then of course it sounds bad!
