Only The Politics Are Naked!


Democracy Burlesque has been performing as a political satire group for over 3 years now. This blog is here for members of Democracy Burlesque to talk about their experiences, for guests of the group to visit and share thoughts, and for the general public to learn about and get a taste of some of the funniest political satire happening in the Midwest - - or anywhere.

I dreamed I saw Luis from "Sesame Street" last night . . .

. . . not exactly "live as you or me," but in the following video, which I hope you will enjoy:

TRM shares a Thought

The Radical Moderate would like to share a thought... though it is likely others have said the same, a specific link couldn't be found.

Science is the greatest tool we have to solve problems.
Faith is what allows us to believe the problems can be solved.

In other words, Faith and Science aren't mutually exclusive, they simply serve different, though vital, roles.


LBJ Tapes Reveal Nixon's Aides may have Commited Treason

News Post From The Radical Moderate -

It seems during the Run-up to the 1968 Election that aides to Nixon may have intentionally discouraged peace talks with the Vietnamese, suggesting that if they waited to sign a peace treaty after the election, Nixon would ensure the South Vietnamese would get a better deal than through LBJ.

At best, the tapes that have been declassified indicate Nixon was a part of some seriously underhanded political maneuvering and at worst, was party to committing treason.

This link will take you to an in depth analysis of the tapes and the implications. - Not for the Feint of heart.

This may not be a New issue, but it points to a systemic issue in our nation's partisan political system. This kind of thing is exactly what drives a Moderate to Radical Ranting and Raving.
