I don't like political surrogates. This came up at the Steel City Stonewall Democrats meeting tonight with regard to PrideFest. I suggested allowing only elected officials to speak which didn't go over very well. However, I can tell you from last year, the decision to allow people with no name recognition to speak on behalf of judicial candidates no one ever heard from was a decision to send people scurrying to the food booths.
I know everyone is earnest and I get the vagaries of the statewide race.
I just don't care. Seriously. Surrogates are not interesting. They may be necessary. But I don't have to like them.
