Sanders Sells: Nobody Moves T-shirts Like the Socialist Senator

-snip-
One night in May, graphic artist Dave Barron found himself sitting up in bed, doodling. Against a dark background, a simple design in stark white emerged: eyeglasses, "2016," and a shock of unkempt white hair. "Bernie," he added, though many would have easily recognized the locks and dome of Vermont's independent junior senator, who was just weeks from announcing his run for president.

For kicks, Barron posted the image on Facebook under the header, "My contribution to the campaign." By morning, the requests were rolling in: "Where can we buy the T-shirts?"

Barron has since shipped thousands of them, to addresses in all 50 states.

He's a little too tall, but...he'd mail it!
