Ending the protest

CAROL: ...so we're here today, to tell Rep. Geminari that we won't stand idly while she and her Democrat cronies hijack our beloved nation! Thank you! And God bless America!!!
A pause.
CAROL: So... so that's it. Protest... over. You Tea Partiers can... can go home.
CAROL: Can... can anyone HEAR me?... My God, have I DIED? Am I a GHOST?!
