“You’ve Earned The New Puppy”

The moment last night when Obama’s speech became so beautiful that we could hardly stand it and we thought our hearts were going to burst out of our chests had to be when Obama said “Sasha and Malia, you’ve earned the new puppy that will be coming with us to the White House.” The rest of the speech was amazing, but that part sent a lot of us over the edge into ecstasy. Here’s that moment, taped by someone who was at the rally for the speech in Grant Park (ignore he screencap — it works):

Ok, from now on, “You’ve earned the new puppy.” will be a phrase. Any time anything good happens or you want to praise someone, say “You’ve earned the new puppy.” We can do this together. Yes, we can. (Also, can we get a live puppy feed for that new puppy?)
