Celebrate July 4th with the Capital Steps and their Politics Takes A Holiday special.

The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. And although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.

Four times a year their Politics Takes A Holiday special skewers top political personalities and policy makers.  And this year is no exception with attention fixed on Vice President Joe Biden, and former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Vice President Joe
Biden recently declared the Capitol Steps Politics Takes A Holiday
radio show "a big @#$%ing deal."  So tune in before Congress repeals
it!

The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them.

In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored conventional
wisdom ("Don’t quit your day job!"), and although not all of the
current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken
together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen
Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and
Senate staff experience.
