Personally, I don't know whether to laugh or to cry. .... please let it be satire!
Jonathan Krohn is a 13 year-old home schooled young man who has been performing on stage since he was eight. Inside Edition’s Debora Norville named him “Atlanta’s Most Talented Child” in 2006. Jonathan has had 3 call-backs for the Broadway part of Michael Banks in Mary Poppins.
Jonathan has recently been seen as John Darling in Peter Pan, and Scott in Dear Edwina, Young Cain in Children of Eden, Colin Cravin in the Secret Garden, as well as parts in The Wizard of Oz, Tom Sawyer, The Jungle Book, and Alice in Wonderland.
In 2007, Jonathan was Guest Narrator for the Gwinnett Philharmonic's rendition of Benjamin Britten's Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra. For the last 3 years Jonathan has performed on the Internet radio show “The Life Connection Show”, with the last year taking over as the principal writer for the show.
He has played the cello since he was 4 and has recently taken up the Banjo. He is active at his church, Peachtree Corners Baptist, and in his spare time he is playing with his dog Spot, and listening to anything political. He loves talk radio. He has also taken up golf in hopes to play with his favorite politicians.
I believe the young man is quite cognizant of what his actual beliefs are and why. Just because he is not alienated from conservative values, like many young people, does not mean he is a victim of propaganda. Perhaps, those conservative values are actually objectively correct for someone that values one's place in American society!
Team the kid with Sarah Palin and take it on the road.
He's been well rehearsed by his coach.

must be a better money maker than the broadway thing for the parents.

another recruit for the Hitler Youth.
He [the kid] still has the zeal of a missionary. His voice rising to a wobbly squeak, he grabs any opening to press the cause. “Barack Obama is the most left-wing president in my lifetime,”* he said.
Mr. Krohn buried his face in his hands. “Oh, Jonathan,” he sighed.
Although the Krohns are conservative, they say Jonathan’s passion for politics is largely his. “Politics bore me,” his mother said flatly. “I’ve learned a lot from Jonathan about the candidates I’ve voted for.” Doug Krohn said he listened to talk radio, but with his Iowa-born soft-sell manner, he’s hardly the pontificating firebrand his son is.
Jonathan said he became a political enthusiast at 8, after hearing about a Democratic filibuster on judicial nominations. “I thought, ‘Who goes to work saying, ‘I’m going to filibuster today?’ ” he said.
Mr. Krohn, looking bleary-eyed by recent events, muttered, “And now he can filibuster with the best of them.”
