Man, Bo Obama is such a good dog. Look at him wearing that hat, and sitting politely, and promoting clean and renewable energy! My dog can’t even roll over.

Solar power on a doghouse is probably overkill — even Bo, who is clearly an extremely fancy pup, doesn’t really NEED lights and music and a disco ball. (And, indeed, I think he does not have them normally. Just for the inauguration.) But if you are going to spoil your pet by giving it one of those asinine doghouses with cable TV and shit, the least you can do is hook it all up to solar panels. And more to the point, in this video Bo is supposedly agitating for similar panels on the humanhouse. At least we know we can count on someone in the White House to push for alternative energy, even if it’s someone with no thumbs who’s easily distracted by Snausages.
