From the Unsubtle Symbolism Dept:
Republicans in Harris County have pounded their Democratic opponents time and time again at the ballot box during the past decade.
Sunday, they intend to throw a grand old party to batter the Democrats' former headquarters in Midtown.
Harris County GOP Chairman Jared Woodfill is asking local Republicans to bring sledgehammers and other implements of destruction to help level the building the Democrats vacated three months ago.
"You bring the muscle, we'll bring the refreshments and we will have a party as we tear down the Harris County Democratic Party headquarters," Woodfill said in his invitation to party faithful.
Whatever. It's just a building (the Dems were on a monthly lease and have moved into new headquarters). Knock yourselves out, fellas. But please, do be careful. Try not to spill any chardonnay on your Cole Hahns, and don't ruin your manicures.

There's just no other way to put it...
What a bunch of assholes.
Demolition work, eh? Of course they're all in the union, right?
I'll be ditching the Cole Hahns for the backpacking boots.
Oh wait, I don't own any Cole Hahns. But still.... :)
Union? I don't get it. This is a right to work state.
But I digress (and probably dissemble as well)...
After hearing Chris Baker on KPRC savage a Harris Co GOP drone over the shennanigans, I called the GOP HQ here directly to express my dismay. I got the same duyfus on the phone that was on the radio, and he had the same useless wet cardboard to say. What a bozo.
Chardonnay? Cole-Haans? Manicures?
Harumph. Maybe in your native New York. Sir.
