They all prepare to hit the road, and Santos mentions how awful the Turkey situation is. All the while, Mrs. Santos is staring daggers at Josh. Somebody's jealous. Josh doesn't think that the White House will do much of anything about it, and Mrs. Santos seems pretty upset: "They're executing her because she slept with her fiancé? Thank God she didn't cook him breakfast." And that's the second thing wrong with this sub-subplot. If the guy was her fiancé, it seems safe to assume that neither of them is married. So where's the adultery? Fornication, perhaps, but adultery seems to require that at least one of the two parties be married to some third party. Josh points out that the U.S. executes minors: "The rest of the world thinks that's barbaric." Mrs. Santos: "I'm with the world." Santos asks Mrs. Santos if she's coming along, and she tells him that Peter has the sniffles, so they're going to stay at the hotel for a while. She again raises the $1 billion spent on ethanol. Santos goes to get his coat, and Josh tells him that photos look better without the coat. Santos would rather to be warm than photogenic, however. Come on, Matt -- you know Josh will keep you warm. As Santos walks away, Mrs. Santos points out to Josh that the campaign is at 3\% in Iowa, and that the Hispanic population of the state is 2.8\%. She thinks the $1 billion spent on ethanol could be spent on a lot of other things. Josh doesn't respond, and he and Santos take off.
Cut to the Santos motorcade. It's considerably less impressive than the Russell motorcade, consisting of a beat-up RV and an SUV (and it's possible that the SUV is just stuck behind them). In the RV, Josh is telling Santos that he's gotten an invitation for Santos to go pheasant hunting with a local politician. The point of this is just to remind us that Santos was in the Marines, and that he knows how to shoot. Santos changes the subject, telling Josh, "You know, Helen's not wrong about ethanol." Hallelujah! Mrs. Santos has a name! And an easy-to-type name at that. You can't see me, but I'm dancing right now. Anyway, Santos talks about why ethanol is bad, and it sounds like this: "Blah blah blah." Josh thinks that after pissing off New Hampshire voters, they can't afford to do the same in Iowa: "What is this, the Insult and Injury Tour?" Santos continues talking about ethanol and farm subsidies: "Blah blah blah." By the way, the light? It is still blue.
