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.

"Capitol Steps is so careful to poke fun at everybody, so they're really an equal opportunity satire group. Nobody is going to escape unscathed if they have anything to do with politics," said Ginny Weatherstone, CEO of VMC.

The Capitol Steps show is part of the Volunteer Ministry Center's 25th anniversary celebration.

Since January of 2007, VMC says it has helped more than 400 people choose housing over homelessness.
