Birds for Bernie

Did y’all see the clip of the little bird landing on Bernie Sander’s podium?┬áIsn’t that cool?! ­čÖé I┬ácan’t┬áimagine a little bird flying to the podium of any other candidate – thousands of people hooting and screaming around him – and happily sitting there for a minute to commune with the speaker. I also can’t imagine any other presidential candidate responding to that little bird in the same way Bernie Sanders did. I’m thinking if that small feathered earthling┬áhas the good sense to recognize a friend when he sees one, why shouldn’t human earthlings be able to do that, too?

I am caucusing in Washington State today. Four years ago I caucused for the first time and ended up going to the state convention as a delegate for President Obama. That was such a blast! (You can read all about that little adventure on my Humoristianity blog.) I’m not voting for Bernie today because that little bird endorses him – I have known from the moment Bernie Sanders announced his candidacy that I would be supporting him – but that video clip surely does help validate my choice for me.
