Former CPAC Child Star Has Joined the Liberal Media

Conservatives disowned Jonathan Krohn, the 13-year-old who wowed the crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference in 2009, when they learned that he'd grown into a Daily Show-watching, Obamacare-supporting NYU freshman, but the situation is even worse than they thought. Politico reports that Krohn, who is 17, has been freelancing for publications like Salon, The Atlantic, and the New York Times in his spare time. Just this week he wrote what he calls a "wonktastic article" on Harry Reid's changes to the Senate rules for Mother Jones, ending any lingering hopes that his turn from right-wing punditry might just be a phase.
