"The most hilarious press release ever issued by a senior politician"?

This (minus the question mark) is Matt Price's assessment of Mike Rann's tribute to Shane Warne (who today took his 700th test wicket). It hasn't yet appeared on Mr Rann's website but Matt has transcribed it to his blog. A print edited highlights is at Matt's sport column at p39 of Saturday's Australian.

I'm reluctant to agree that it's the most hilarious press release ever, but I concur that it is over the top. It is certainly much more flowery than the statement issued by
Prime Minister Howard in a doorstep interview (but perhaps he didn't want too many people to ask him about his retirement plans).
