Girl Drops Pinkalicious for John Bolton

A reader writes, “Hi, Jay: Thought you might like to know that my three-year-old niece put down her book Pinkalicious while I was babysitting her over the weekend and picked up my National Review and said, ‘I wanna read this one.’ Then she pointed to John Bolton on the cover and said, ‘Why does he look like that?’ I said, ‘He has a very prominent mustache.’ She then opened the magazine and said, ‘I like this book, it’s funny.’ I couldn’t have been prouder. Picture attached. (Note my fiancée’s book on Mao next to her. She’s going to be a formidable conservative.)”

So, you want to see this picture of the discriminating Aliza, three years old? Of course — here. (And, yes, yes: Many of our critics have opened our pages and found them “funny.”) (Many others have found them funny in a good way! Have you ever read Rob Long? When he does the North Korean heir, tweeting, I’d like to die.) (As they do in North Korea.)
