Capitol Steps Politics Takes a Holiday Year End Review Airs Wednesday, December 31 at 7 p.m. Repeats Thursday, January 1 at 7 p.m. Help say good-bye and good riddance to 2014 with the Capitol Steps and their annual year-end review. It’s all in their hour-long special of “Politics Takes a Holiday!” This year will feature all-new awards, such as: “Is that guy jumping the White House fence or is he just really into Michelle’s ‘Get Moving’ campaign? “You say ISIS, I say ISIL. Let’s call the whole thing off.” And of course, “I scream, you scream, we all scream EBOLA!”
Go ahead and announce it on your social media pages, but don’t post it on the Cloud because we have some pictures we really don’t think the world is ready to see. So let’s send 2014 out like a character from Fifty Shades of Grey…with a bright red bottom.
