Crazy Connie, the gift that keeps on giving

The Capital-Journal reports on Connie Morris's future plans:

"Rest," said Morris, when asked what her plans were after her loss. She denied rumors she was preparing to stage a write-in campaign in November.

"Nothing to it," she said.
Sort of like ID?

A Christian News and Media Agency quotes the erstwhile Board of Ed. member saying that "the 'lying liberal media' defeated her":
"The media assassinated me," Morris contends. "They did everything they could to ruin my character, my reputation. I wish I could go through all the stories to tell you how they were either blatant lies or gross misinterpretations of the facts," she says.
Needless to say, this is a bit rich. Morris didn't get beaten by the media, she got beaten by Sally Cauble, a truly lovely person. And Morris got some negative media attention when she used taxpayer money to travel to Florida for a conference on magnet schools, and a visit with her family. The problem was that she has no magnet schools, nor plans for magnet schools, in her district, and stayed in a hotel room that cost more per night than her constituents might spend on housing in a month.

Besides which she has written a book about her childhood adventures with sex, drugs and, well, more sex. Media stories that reported the contents of her own autobiography can hardly be criticized as attempts at hurting her reputation.

Guess who she says is:

slandering people and harming their families and their reputation and their business and their communities and their state. It's a shame. It's a shame, and I feel bad for them when they face God on Judgment Day.
I happen to think that her publicly funded newsletter in which she attacked her colleagues on the Board, and her disrespect for the scientific experts who wrote the standards she hacked to bits both should make her afraid of what will happen on that Day.
