Fergie is the best way to make any point.
Rep. Sean Casten (D-IL) used Fergie as inspiration to inject a little energy into his address to Congress on Wednesday. Casten sought to curry favour for his bill related to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

“As climate activist Fergie would certainly say, the FERC-alicious definition is to make our planet cooler,” he said before launching into spoken song.
“Having a well-air-conditioned home when it’s ‘hot, hot,’ that’s FERC-alicious, getting your electricity from the lowest cost reliable source — FERC-alicious — an electric transmission system that keeps everything from electric vehicles to steel mills running with zero-carbon electricity, FERC-alicious.”
Casten also referenced a “hot FERC summer,” a nod to rapper Megan Thee Stallion’s hit song and catchphrase “Hot Girl Summer”.
