Link of the Day:

I was a right-wing child star

I remember Jonathan Krohn from 2008, albeit mostly from the re-used footage on the Daily Show (but after the Daily Show peaked my interest, I did a youtube search and watched a few clips of him talking in various interviews.) He was very articulate for a 13 year old, but I remember thinking at the time that it was kind of stupid to parade a 13 year old around as a voice of the conservative movement. Sure he's conservative as a child. I was conservative when I was 13 as well, because at that age most children are just parroting the views of the adults around them. It will be interesting to see how his views develop as he gets older, I thought to myself back in 2008.

Well, it's amazing how time flies.
