Put a bird on it!

At a Bernie Sanders rally in Portland, Oregon, a small bird lands on the stage and then flies directly up to the podium in full view of the cheering crowd.

Hard to tell, but it is either a female sparrow or a goldfinch.

    That scene captures metaphorically the disparate tones of this election season better than anything to date. At Sanders rallies, even little birdies flock to his message (shades of St. Francis). At Trump rallies, it’s more likely to see someone flipping him the “bird” (then get sucker punched).

    Birdie/Wa-wren 2016!
