So long and thanks for all the fish: Conrad Burns does not and never has had a way with language. But, Language Log points us to a real gem from the good ex-senator, from his farewell speech. My goodness. This man makes George W. Bush look like a genius! From the official Congressional record:

We have new opportunities now, and they have opened. I am proud to say that it was me and my office that led the way on most of those changes. It is said that it is not bragging if you have done it. I was fortunate enough to attract a staff that shared the same vision of change, and change we did. Montana is not short of visionaries. It was my privilege to know them, work with them, and to move our State forward.
