Check Out My Wife’s New Token Conservative Blog at the San Francisco Chronicle

The San Fransisco Chronicle recently asked its political columnist Debra J. Saunders (a.k.a. Secondhand Smokette) to begin a blog.  Debra calls it Token Conservative–for reasons that anyone familiar with the politics of Baghdad by the Bay will readily understand.

Debra is a wonderful writer with a fine wit who bats from the moderate right side of the plate.  Unlike SHS, which is a niche blog, Debra tackles all things political, with occasional forays into areas we discuss, but more frequently dealing with matters beyond our scope here.  In any event, if you like good political writing, check her out.  Here’s a link to her first entry.

P.S.: Debra often receives strong reactions from readers.  If you like–or dislike–what she writes, please don’t post about it here.  There are comment opportunities to react to her at http://www.sfgate.com. Thanks.
