We put the MOCK in Democracy!

Week of December 10

The President tweeted a surprise "Thank you!" to Robert Mueller, whose latest court filings establish that "Individual-1" directed illegal hush money payments to his former mistresses. Now the special counsel is reportedly focusing on criminal activity by the Trump family business and possibly preparing to indict Donald Trump, Jr.

From the album Make America Great Again (2018).


Week of December 3

Former President George H.W. Bush passed away at the age of 94, and he is being remembered all week in Washington and around the nation. The Capitol Steps had the honor of performing for him on multiple occasions. At a show in the spring of 1988 he asked us, "Who do you think I should pick as vice president?" "Pick someone funny," we replied. And he did. After the election, we performed this song for him, the first lady, and the vice president too.

From the album Stand By Your Dan (1989).


Week of November 26

Brett Kavanaugh has been on the Supreme Court for almost two months, keeping a low profile in the hope that Demcrats don't follow through on their talk of impeaching him. Since joining the Court as a "Trump judge," he hasn't assaulted anyone, lied before Congress — or even been seen in public with a beer! And he's got a calendar to prove it.

New! See live performance video!


Week of November 19

Massive voter fraud getting you down? Did you feel disoriented waiting for recounts in Georgia or Florida? Confused about ranked-choice-voting disarray in Maine? Already stressed out about 2020? There is a cure!

From the album Four More Years in the Bush Leagues (2005).


Week of November 12

Veterans' Day weekend was supposed to feature the Washington, D.C. military parade that President Trump ordered rain or shine! — after he saw one in France. The Pentagon couldn't get it done this year, but they've agreed to "explore opportunities in 2019" so stay tuned.

From the album Make America Grin Again (2018). See a live performance video on YouTube.


Week of November 5

Pollsters and pundits are mostly predicting that Democrats will take control of the House in the midterm elections. They've been wrong before, but one guy is obviously not hanging around to find out what comes next. Join us for this retirement sing-along.

From the album Make America Grin Again (2018).


Week of October 29

Former Fed chief Paul Volcker is peddling the quaint idea that "good government" and "sound money" are the key to prosperity. President Trump has other ideas. It's been ten years since the last financial crisis. If another one is around the corner, the next bailout will be even scarier and more expensive than the last one, which wasn't cheap.

From the album Obama Mia! (2009).
