Birther ‘Gary Kreep’ Actually More Fortunately Named Than California Judgeship Opponent

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

There are still so many absentee ballots left to count in birther Gary Kreep’s race for a San Diego judgeship, and he and his opponent are 56 votes apart. Kreep, seen in the video above exhibiting the kind of impartiality and fairness and logic and sense which Californians so esteem in their jurists, is well schooled in law and courtrooms as he has been suing Barack Obama for eternity for his many crimes against humanity (being blah) while simultaneously Hatfield and McCoying with the woman whose skull is a hummingbird graveyard, one birther/lawyer/dentist/real estate agent/cosmetologist Ms. Frau Doktor Orly Taitz.

But in what other ways is Gary Kreep super-duper-unbiased and shit? So very many ways.

Kreep was the attorney for Personhood Nevada, an anti-abortion political organization that attempted to circulate a petition to prevent “discrimination against the unborn,” according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. A judge threw out the petition in December because the language was too vague.

In 2009, Kreep launched DefendGlenn.com, a site dedicated to protecting then-FOX commentator Glenn Beck from boycotts and attacking activist Van Jones, ThinkProgress.org and others reported.

Kreep was the lead attorney in a lawsuit to invalidate same-sex marriage licenses and was part of the conservative legal team observing the Proposition 8 vote tally.

Oh, right. And the dude Gary Kreep may or may not beat to be a California judge has lived since birth with the name Garland Peed.

That is brilliant! I'm going to put that on a poster and hang it in our non-partisan political group's booth where we register people to vote, provide info about what's going on in local politics, the dangers of Citizens United, and ideas on how they can help make changes for the better- http://www.involveddemocracy.org

It depends on whether we are talking about bourgeois democracy or proletarian democracy.

Well, well, Ms. Pretty-head wants to dump all over people who weren't as blessed by the name fairy…. Snob!

MittBorg June 6, 2012 at 5:25 pm

I sense a little real-life resentment there, Chich.

Chichikovovich June 6, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Well, as it happens my real last name is uncomfortably close in sound to a French-Canadian slur, a fact that gave my friends no end of delight in high-school. But since speakers of non-Canadian versions of French, and certainly Americans, have no idea of this, I now only have to put up with it on holidays with the folks. So the scars have largely healed.

But that has absolutely nothing to do with my defence of Mssrs. Kreep and Peed, which was motivated solely by considerations of kindness and fair play….

MittBorg June 6, 2012 at 5:43 pm

(Hugs the Chich fondly) I grew up as a member of a very small minority in the land of my birth, and my name sounded funny to the other kids in school too. All my life, I've been known only by the initial letter of my first name. It's why I feel obliged to adopt aliases (and change them, I suppose).

You have to admit, though, Kreep and Peed really do take the cake.

Butch_Wagstaff June 6, 2012 at 6:40 pm

I hated my first name for years because I thought it sounded dorky. I was never teased about it, though. I was probably the first person in my family in who-knows-how-many-generations who wasn't named for someone in the Bible.
A few years ago, I found out that my first name is actually very old Celtic one & has a feminine variation. So I'm now quite proud of it.

Chow Yun Flat June 6, 2012 at 9:27 pm

I grew up in Chicago on the South Side when you identified where you lived by parish. "My" parish was named after Saint Bede the Venerable (I'm from Bede's) which included a number of first generation Poles–two my fifth grade friends were named Zdzislaw and Casimir. Both of them had older brothers who were big and mean as hell so they didn't have any problems from the Irish riff-raff (like me).

LionHeartSoyDog June 6, 2012 at 7:15 pm

My Mom, bless her heart, named me after the Cœur de Lion, King Richard of English fables.
So i was a Dick for decades, but not really.
And today i have a different understanding of the ongoing Crusades.

MittBorg June 6, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Which makes you even MORE NOT a dick, so there.

Callyson June 6, 2012 at 5:20 pm

You know, you would think that the birthers would have thought of the fact that if Obama *were* born outside of the US, he would have gotten on with the big conspiratorial task of signing our national sovereignty over to the UN, or whatever the fuck they think he secretly plotted to do fifty years ago when he started the big charade with the birth announcement in the Hawaii newspapers…

GunToting[Redacted] June 6, 2012 at 5:35 pm

Duh. That's what he'll do in the SECOND term. See also: gun control.

Isyaignert June 7, 2012 at 1:23 am

The birthers dont' realize that no matter where you're born, if your mother is an American citizen, so are you. Mittens' dad was born in Mexico and he ran for president. So there!

Chichikovovich June 6, 2012 at 5:21 pm

I do hope that "judge" is a ceremonial position, right? Beauty contests, largest pumpkins at the fair, that sort of thing? Because I can see a certain downside to having a howling lunatic who ought not to be let out in public without a drool bib sitting in judgement of people's lives.

MittBorg June 6, 2012 at 5:26 pm

Perish the thought! He'll be deciding the fate of our citizens forthwith. Or at least until he brings his concealed-carry weapon to the courtroom and opens up on some of our finest citizens during one of his more spectacular mental dysfunction days.

They're running for office using their p*rn names?

CthuNHu June 6, 2012 at 5:22 pm

Let's hope the final result is Peed all over Kreep.

The Aristocrats!

MittBorg June 6, 2012 at 5:27 pm

Peed is actually a well-respected jurist with decades of experience. Kreep, OTOH, has absolutely NOTHING to commend him. He's a howling loon. I hope to god Peed wins, all jokes aside.

didgen June 6, 2012 at 5:59 pm

Peed has probably had the name cause to look beyond the surface, while Kreep appears to aspire to be worthy of his name.

MittBorg June 6, 2012 at 6:18 pm

I'm just terrified that Kreep will win. It's SD, after all, rife with birfer nutbags. I'm already really down because Snotty Wanker was not recalled. I'm not liking this at all.

Dudleydidwrong June 6, 2012 at 5:22 pm

What is amazing is that the ancestors of people who would have and pass on such names made it across the Donner Pass without being eaten.

MittBorg June 6, 2012 at 6:19 pm

Be honest, Dudley. If given a choice between eating a Kreep and, say, a Smith or Jones, which would you eat?

Can't you just hear it? "I'm not gonna eat that Kreep. I bet he tastes like Schitt."

BigSkullF*ckingDog June 6, 2012 at 5:22 pm

jakegittes June 6, 2012 at 7:00 pm

Laugh it up, fuzzballs. I may have to appear in court in front of this lunatic. I know both of these guys. Peed is definitely to be preferred over Kreep. Garland (Gary) has always lived with the obvious implications of his name. We all used to joke (including Garland Peed): "Gary Peed." "Where?"

Steverino247 June 6, 2012 at 7:36 pm

One is the highest rated lawyer in the County and the other is the lowest rated. A damned shame if Peed loses. We'll know more on Thursday when most of the absentee ballots are counted.

Steverino247 June 6, 2012 at 7:33 pm

Semi-full disclosure time: I've run up against Kreep or his minions in the past. The man ain't that good, is the short version. The long version is I used to have some problems with State-sanctioned activities at certain times of the year, usually around late December. Kreep, of course, was all over it. Debates were held and I whomped all comers. I don't think I went against Kreep, but the ones I did whomp had paid too much attention to what he was writing and saying at the time. So, I'm safe from appearing in front of him longer than it would take me to brag about destroying his feeble arguments. That or I'd instantly win any appeals.

As for him actually taking the bench. I hope he likes Traffic Court, Child Support hearings or Small Claims, because there's no fucking way this clown is going to get any choice assignment. This election was about idiots pranking themselves over names. Foolish behavior, not some wave of Birther Fever. If the names were anything else, Kreep would lose. This wasn't his first time on the ballot, but it was the first time when a headline like "Kreep Over Peed" was possible.

MittBorg June 6, 2012 at 7:57 pm

The other kids in my school simply couldn't pronounce my name, so they would instead substitute an English equivalent which, fortunately for me, didn't have any pejorative connotations (I was lucky, my brothers didn't fare so well). However, it invariably led to a lengthy discussion on the correct pronunciation, meaning, ethnicity, origins, et cetera, ad infinitum, ad nauseam. I just got tired of it. Interestingly enough, it sounds enough like a Celtic name that I've had Irish folk repeatedly ask me how I came by "such a fine Irish name." Very amusing.

Butch_Wagstaff June 6, 2012 at 9:02 pm

My paternal grandmother named me (and most of her grandchildren). I have no idea how she decided on my name because she was a country gal from east TN who was very, very generations removed from the Isles & NONE of her ancestors had that name.
