Political satire group performs to packed house at Bijou Theatre

A group stopped in East Tennessee to poke fun of what they call our political leaders' "eccentricities".

Capitol Steps performed for a packed house on Tuesday at the Bijou Theatre. They're a political satire group out of Washington, and they've been ribbing on our nation's leaders for 30 years now. All money raised at the event benefits the Volunteer Ministry Center.

Forget about taking sides, liberal conservative, even independent, the group pokes fun at them all.
