"The sketch could have been a dumb catfight between two female candidates. What Seth and Amy wrote, however, was two women speaking out together against sexism in the campaign. In real life, these women experienced different sides of the same sexism coin. People attempted to marginalize these women based on their gender. Amy's line 'Although it is never sexist to question female politicians' credentials' was basically the thesis statement for everything we did over the next six weeks — not that anyone noticed. You all watched a sketch about feminism and you didn’t even realize it because of all the jokes. It's like when Jessica Seinfeld puts spinach in kids' brownies. Suckers!"
