We see Amy on a monitor giving a speech in front of a Women's Leadership Coalition banner. It's a pretty flaccid speech. She cites opposition to late-term abortions, lack of affordable day care, gag rules, and sexist old politicians, with about as much detail as I just gave you, and states that she, the WLC, and women in general are not fine with all that. ["'I'm not fine with that' is the lamest bit of rhetorical flair I've heard in a long while. You might want to trade in your pricey chair for a new speechwriter, there, Lockjaw." -- Wing Chun] Josh wanders into the room where Amy's giving the speech. People start to applaud. Amy says, "It's really something: every two years we get to overthrow the government." Yeah. Lotta overthrowing going on. As I always say: it doesn't matter who you vote for, the government always gets in. Amy urges them to get out the vote and get the Congress they deserve. More applause. She finishes up with "May God bless America!" Huh? Really, isn't that a bit more DEFCON 2? You generally don't see a lot of flag-waving and Judeo-Christian- Islamic-God-invoking going on during most American feminist speeches. At this point people actually give her a cheering, standing ovation. What. Ev. Er. From the back of the room, Josh catches Amy's eye and makes a gesture with his chin, indicating that he'll meet her backstage.
