Synopsis

Amazon.com
The smartest political satirists working the Washington, D.C. Beltway--and maybe the entire United States--have made two funny and politically incorrect Christmas records that are marred only by the shifting political (mis)fortunes of the scene. Since All I Want for Christmas Is a Tax Increase was recorded in 1993, its batch of Clinton jokes and bye-bye Bushie and Quayle jabs don't travel all that well through time. But as history lessons from the early 1990s, they make for great reminiscences and grave grimaces at the most wonderful time of the year (when you can still sneak some soft money into your favorite presidential candidate's back pocket). Perhaps the most humorous--and timeless--thing on this set are the alleged album-jacket remarks from Larry King, Tom Clancy, Al Gore, Bernard Shaw, and George Bush about the bipolar, bipartisan troupe. "Some people in Washington are confused," says Gore, "but the Capitol Steps are not." Then there's this crack one-liner from Bush, sounding very presidential: "The Capitol Steps make it easier to leave public life." --Martin Keller
