The Capitol Steps have been skewering our nation’s politicians left, right, and center for more than 35 years. They began as a group of Congressional staffers planning entertainment for a Christmas party. When they couldn’t find three wise men and a virgin in all of Washington, they settled on satire. As long as our politicians keep providing material (is that even an issue?), they’ll keep going. They turn headlines into laugh lines on a daily basis and put the “mock” in democracy.
