Bad News: 2009's Star of CPAC, 13 Year Old Conservative Wunderkind Jonathan Krohn, Is Now a Liberal

Meh. I always felt a little odd the right getting all silly about this kid, especially because we were so annoyed at other youngster's being used as ventriloquist dolls by their liberal parents.

What does a 13 year old know? Nothing.

What does a 17 year old know? Slightly less.

At Politico:

“I think it was naive,” Krohn now says of the speech. “It’s a 13-year-old kid saying stuff that he had heard for a long time.… I live in Georgia. We’re inundated with conservative talk in Georgia.… The speech was something that a 13-year-old does. You haven’t formed all your opinions. You’re really defeating yourself if you think you have all of your ideas in your head when you were 12 or 13. It’s impossible. You haven’t done enough."

But now, at age 17... game on, bitches.

Krohn won’t go so far as to say he’s liberal, in part because his move away from conservatism was a move away from ideological boxes in general.

...

But a quick rundown of his current political stances suggests a serious pendulum swing away from the right.

Gay marriage? In favor. Obamacare? “It’s a good idea.” Who would he vote for (if he could) in November? “Probably Barack Obama.” His favorite TV shows? “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report.” His favorite magazine? The New Yorker.

Shinebox.
