I’m pleased to announce we have a new member in our happy conservative blogging coalition, The Jeffersoniad. For those who don’t know, The Jeffersoniad is a group of conservative and libertarian bloggers from across our great Commonwealth. In any event, may I present to you SWAC Girl. I first met Lynn Mitchell, the blog’s author, back in 2006 while working for the RPV. She impressed me as a very dedicated and passionate activist back then. Like myself, she is a resident of the Shenandoah Valley. For those who don’t know Virginia geography, her local politics encompass the neighboring southern county and cities, the cities of Staunton, Waynesboro, and Augusta County, which form her acronym SWAC. Her blog is a good deal older than my own and, according to her website, it started in the early part of 2006. Although you might not agree with everything she has to say (heck, a number of you disagree with a lot of what I have to say), I certainly think her site is worth reading. Right now, she’s got some good stuff up about the recent tea party events, including pictures from the Staunton Tea Party. Go check it out!
