Kathleen McKinley is the proprietor of Rightwingsparkle. She writes that the Houston Chronicle has asked her to be its conservative blogger. She has accordingly also set up shop as TexasSparkle. Kathy’s introduction of herself to Chronicle readers concludes:

I am a person of deep faith. I have spent most of my adult life in volunteer work, helping in the community, raising good kids and teaching them to care for others. I have never broken the law and always paid my taxes. This is what a rightwinger looks like. This is what compassionate conservatives look like.

They look like me.

In her message to us, Kathy invites us to visit her site, writing: “I want this lefty paper to see that a conservative can drive up some traffic!”
