It seems like the kind of rant she could have made at anytime - it wasn't necessarily related to this vote or issue. Maybe now that the distraction of the shutdown/debt debacle was over, someone decided we needed something "shiny" while they ramp up the next distraction.
Also, they way she did it was...well...bizarre...in an almost robotic sense.

Capitol Police confirmed they were currently conducting interviews about the incident but declined to release the stenographer’s name.

The Values Voter Summit is an annual political conference for American social conservative activists and elected officials from across the United States.
Values Voter Summit is hosted by the Family Research Council with numerous conservative organizations sponsoring or otherwise participating in the conference. In the most recent summit, 38 organizations participated and 2,000 people were in attendance. The summit is usually held in September or October of each year.
The FRC promotes what it considers to be traditional family values, by advocating and lobbying for socially conservative policies. It opposes and lobbies against LGBT rights (such as same-sex marriage and LGBT adoption), abortion, divorce, embryonic stem-cell research and pornography. The FRC is affiliated with a 501(c)(4) lobbying PAC known as FRC Action. In 2010, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) classified the FRC as an anti-gay hate group, a designation which generated controversy. In 2012, a security guard working at the FRC headquarters was shot by a man who saw the organization listed on the SPLC's web site.
