Democrat to Challenge Morris

The Associated Press is reporting that Tim Cruz, the former mayor of Garden City, has announced he plans to run against Connie Morris. She's the Kansas State Board of Education member who made her bones with the Kansas right through opposition to educating the children of illegal immigrants. Some time back, Morris famously -- and falsely -- accused Cruz of being in the country illegally.

For our part, Red State Rabble will miss Connie -- she's always been our go-to gal on the board when we needed something funny to write about. In her own inimitable way, Connie's fashioned herself into a reliable source of humorous posts -- so much so that we've come to think of her as the Old Faithful of intelligent design creationism.

RSR is trying to come to grips with the loss. Right now, we're consoling ourselves with the knowledge that the election is still a way off -- in 2006. We don't have to go cold turkey. We'll be allowed to wean ourselves away, slowly.
