They may be a necessary evil …

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.
