Help roast 2013 to a crisp with the Capitol Steps and their annual year-in-review awards ceremony. It’s all in their hour-long special, “Politics Takes a Holiday!” This year will feature all-new awards, such as:
“Best Moment in Senator Ted Cruz’s 21-hour Filibuster,” “Most ‘icky’ Tweet from Carlos Danger” “Best Thigh-Reducing Exercises to do While Waiting for Healthcare.gov” and, of course, “Best Reason to Spy On the American Public- Because You Can!”
Go ahead, announce it on Twitter (but please, please don’t attach any photos!!!)
It’s been a great year for job creation…although of course many of the jobs created were for comedians!
