How to Win a Glowing Profile In Politico: Betray Right, 'Swing Left'
Some of you might remember Jonathan Krohn, the adorable conservative whiz kid who gave speeches and wrote books and wowed every conservative adult he came across at the tender age of thirteen.
Oh, wait, if you’re stupid enough to only get your news from the corrupt Politico, you probably don’t. Because up until today, Politico didn't give Mr. Krohn a whole lot of attention. In fact, according to Politico's own search engine, here's the sum total of the attention Krohn's received since stepping onto the national stage in 2009 at CPAC: two videos and an "Arena" plug after he apparently (the link is dead) became useful to Politico after accusing the GOP of "whining."
For years this young conservative phenom was out there and unless its search engine is faulty, Politico couldn't bring itself to cobble together 300 words about him.
That all changed today, though. Today Krohn earned himself a big, splashy, loving, affectionate, thousand-word Politico profile.
Because Krohn's a left-winger now:
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. And, perhaps telling of all, Krohn is enrolling this fall at a college not exactly known for its conservatism: New York University.
Starting to see how Politico works?
When you're a young conservative phenom taking the world by storm and writing books, no one at Politico's going to write a glowing profile of you.
But when you’re just another 17 year-old in favor of gay marriage, ObamaCare, and Obama -- Well, young man, pull up a chair, tell us all about how you saw the light, and let us reward you for that.
Just another piece of evidence backing my Justice Roberts' theory.
