Dear Mr. VP,

Tonight, I got the rare chance to wander around a bookstore without a child in tow. It meant I got to actually look at the books, not just fend off requests to purchase a toy.

And I found myself in the young adult section, which I quickly realized is your worst nightmare. I think that basically every other cover was emblazoned with a pentagram, and even if there was no pentagram, it’s likely the book had some sort of strong take-no-shit female character fighting in a post-apocalyptic world, and we know how you feel about that.

I have to think — or at least hope — that if this is the steady reading diet of teenagers, we won’t ever have a Vice President Pence again. If we can get them to vote when they turn eighteen.

D
