Jonathan Krohn in his own words

I wrote recently about Jonathan Krohn, the former conservative child star, who grew up. He has written quite a funny piece for Salon explaining what happened and the reactions to news of his drift away from conservatism. He echoes what I said, “So this is what this story boils down to: A 17-year-old has different opinions than he did at 13. People may be disappointed by how underwhelming that is, but it’s how the world works.”

Here he is on CNN.

    Left of the Republican Party is not the Left. Obama is not the Left; there is no Left in the United States.

    In any case, I am glad Jonathan grew up. The same cannot be said for the most of the Republican Party.

    Anthony K

    He might not, in his own words, really have known what he was talking about at thirteen, but damn if he wasn’t a talented orator.

  3. 3

    There is a Left in the US, it just doesn’t reside in the two major parties.
