Last week, the Harris County Democratic Party managed to negotiate itself into participating in today's Martin Luther King Day Parade in downtown Houston.
Here you can read about the terms of the "agreement". It would be important to note that without these terms, the HCDP would have been disallowed from participating.
Well, late yesterday, the Democrats were uninvited anyway.
It probably has nothing at all to do with the fractious rivalry that's been going on for ten years between competing supporters.
But it's a big stinking mess, nevertheless. And I hope we find out more about the backstory, so this dirty laundry can get cleaned soon.
