The bird, breed unknown, alighted on the stage before flying up to the Democratic presidential hopeful’s podium. Sanders stood smiling and laughing at the little feller for a few seconds as the crowd cheered – whether it was for the bird or their candidate was not clear.
At one point Sanders shrugged his shoulders at Mr Bird as if to say, “Waddya know – you’re a hit.
”The bird, seemingly nonplussed by all the attention, did not stay long though, and after he flitted off, Sanders said: “I think there may be some symbolism here. I know it doesn’t look like it, but that bird is really a dove asking us world peace.”
I have to admit, that is pretty awesome.
However right now I am standing among a group of my fellow Alaskans preparing to caucus for Hillary Clinton. Because even though I am impressed by Sanders Disneyesque ability to communicate with our fine feathered friends, I still want a proven Democratic leader in the White House.
But hey if I ever have a small woodland creature in my home who refuses to leave I now know who to call.
