    Re: Manny Ortez

    Jon has it right when he says that Kerry is perpetrating a fraud upon those “common people” he wishes to connect with through sports. A blogger called “Son of Nixon” really nailed this (warning, profanity) recently: Isn’t this a minor transgression, some would ask? After all, the guy merely…

    Was Manny Ortez a Buckeye?

    Noted sports fan and man of the people John Kerry had an uncomfortable few moments in Michigan, The American Spectator reports: On Sunday and into Monday, Kerry hit Michigan, where he attempted to use the same Ohio jokes. Clearly, the sports humor has to be taken out of…

Under the proposal, 100 boards and commissions would be wiped out, consolidating duplicative departments and generally streamlining government.
