John is extra busy with his day job this week, so I’m filling in a bit on his cheesecake beat, but it fits with my energy-environment beat. How so? Stay tuned. I’m sure you won’t have any trouble given the photos here.
For a long time conservatives have wondered how Michigan Republican Rep. Fred Upton, otherwise a fairly orthodox conservative, could ever have sponsored that stupid ban on incandescent light bulbs that was in the 2007 energy bill. Well, it turns out that the new Si swimsuit cover girl, Kate Upton, is his niece. Now I get it. The Upton family obviously doesn’t need any bright lights at family gatherings.
My AEI colleague Nick Schulz interviewed Upton here (Fred, not Kate) not long ago, but obviously forgot to ask the really important questions. Like Kate’s phone number?
