Today, Salon posts a report from its ARTS subdivision. These are the headlines it bears:
SALON (7/9/12) Who are you, Katie Holmes?Willa Paskin handles the pap. She's "Salon's staff TV writer."
We thought we knew the teenager on "Dawson's Creek." Then she married Tom Cruise. Now she must reintroduce herself.
While we're at it, we might as well mention the pitiful piece Salon posted over the weekend. It was written by a 17-year-old uber-nuisance who needs to be told to scram.
The nuisance in question is Jonathan Krohn. When he was 13, he became a right-wing darling.
Now that he is 17, Krohn has come out as a liberal! Showing how sad our emerging team is, Salon has published his memoir.
(Headline: "I was a right-wing child dstar." Dude! You're a left-wing child star today!)
A week or so back, Krohn was showcased all over MSNBC. Lawrence had met his match!
It gets worse. In a sign that the apocalyse is nigh, Digby has reacted to Krohn's re-emergence in this thoughtful manner:
DIGBY (7/8/12): I think this kid provides a real insight into conservatism: they are emotionally and intellectually stunted. This kid was smarter than most, so he was probably a little ahead of the curve. I would suppose that the usual conservative mental age is around 15.If they were "stunted" for pimping him at 13, what exactly does that make us? He's only 17 now!
Katie Holmes must reintroduce herself—and here are the thoughts of our teen-aged wonder! It’s truly time for Krohn to go.
But how sad, that our "liberal" tribe is so much the mirror of theirs!
