Over at National Review, Jay Nordlinger recounts a story
from a reader, who says her "three-year-old niece ... put down her book
Pinkalicious ... over the weekend" in favor of an issue of National Review. The reader was, of course, delighted ("I
couldn't have been prouder") and Nordlinger is similarly pleased with
"the discriminating Aliza," who apparently also chose National Review
over the reader's fiancee's "book on Mao"--imagine that.
Perhaps the more delightful moment comes in the middle, and may be enjoyed regardless of political affiliation. Out of the mouths of babes:
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.'
