John Cole of the popular conservative site, Balloon Juice, has been getting increasingly annoyed with his party for the past few years.
And now he’s done it: he went and registered as a Democrat.
A bit of an embarrassment is that Balloon Juice was nominated as one the finalists for Best Conservative Blog of 2007. Cole is not phased — he holds his conservative bona fides close to his heart. He just doesn’t think the Republican Party under George Bush is very, well, conservative (big spending, spying, etc.)
