ABSTRACT
The article presents an interview with the Capitolist, an incognito blogger who posted the frustration and the happenings in Capitol Hill, Washington D.C. The Capitolist wanted to create a forum for Hill people to speak openly and honestly. He wanted to discuss about the policy and politics and the less serious aspects of working on the Hill. The blogger knows that he could get fired for the site, but he is not afraid getting caught because he has no plan to work on the Hill.
