Bernie Sanders Tshirts

It's the height of the primary season, and all the remaining candidates (as of this writing, there are only Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders on the Democratic side, and Donald Trump, John Kasich, and Ted Cruz for the Republicans) are working hard to secure delegates to the summer conventions. And t-shirt designers are in hog heaven! One particularly fun event occurred when Bernie Sanders was making a rousing speech in Portland Oregon and a little bird landed on the podium.

These kinds of truly spontaneous moments are so rare in politics, so unique amidst the dull rhetoric and sound bytes of the season, that they become iconic. The fact that the bird happened to alight in Portland of all places gave the incident a feeling of serendipity at the least, or providence at the most. Who doesn't recall the Portlandia tv show, and its "put a bird on it" episode?

While the Portlandia bird appears to be a Northern Cardinal (even though there are no Northern Cardinals in Oregon), the little fella that made an appearance on Sanders' podium was a house finch. Never mind, it's the thought that counts, right?
