    I assumed that the name was pronounced differently. Pay Ed, for instance. Or Ped. Whattya know.

    Well, if this judge business peters out and goes down the tubes, Mr. Peed’s still got his modeling career to fall back on.

    Looks like Garland Peed over Mr. Kreep, and Gary says the results stink.

    Garland Peed–say it, don’t spray it.

    After this election, we won’t get Peed again.

    Garland Peed made Gary Kreep.

    Between Maddow & Limbaugh, both are hard for me listen too. I was never one for over the top party-liners, but that’s just me.

    GARY GEORGE KREEP 164267 49.83%

    This is a lead (for Peed) of 1,093 votes.

    88,000 votes remain to be counted.

    I rather enjoy Maddow. She does go over the top sometimes, and then it is entertaining.

    But at least she doesn’t lie or hate like the guy you folks mentioned.

    I suppose you have a point, but it seems like such total pandering BS. The lesser of two evils is still evil. Not that I’m calling Rachel Maddow evil. Just using the metaphor.

    I see some equating of Maddow and Limbaugh, which prompts me to point out an extremely significant difference: Limbaugh lies all the time about everything, Maddow doesn’t.

    Maddow also doesn’t travel to the child prostitution hubs of the Caribbean packing Viagra, AFAIK.

    Can we assume that we are not going to see a decrease in the 88000 remaining uncounted ballots until Monday? Or will they work this weekend? They don’t really need to decide anything quite yet.

    jayHG:

    The quote is dead wrong. The election results have not been certified. At the point of the process when election-day votes had been counted, Kreep had a small lead in the vote count, of roughly 50 votes. At that time there were at least 135,000 uncounted absentee or provisional votes. Currently, in California, more than half of the voters are registered as “permanent absentee” or “vote by mail”.

    I don’ t know whether Doc intends to be satirical or is being uncharacteristically careless, but the San Diego registrar of voters web site reporting primary results contains very bold letters at the top of the page:

    “THESE RESULTS ARE UNOFFICIAL
    Last updated on: [date] at: [time]
    There are approximately _____ Absentee / Provisional ballots still to be counted”

    Statistically, Peed & Kreep are tied and have been so throughout the reporting of votes. When every last vote is counted, if one candidate has only 1 vote more than the other, that person will be the Judge – though of course there would likely be a recount and potential challenges in that setting.

    But no one has yet been elected to fill that seat.

    99% of the time. There are a couple instances where she goes astray and does not even notice much less acknowledge. Rare, but it happens. My take is her investment gets the better of her a couple times where she goes just a little further than she actually needs to make a good story. Keep in mind I am a huge Rachel Maddow fan. For one, because she is honest and corrects herself when she is aware of her mistake.

    I also don’t think she is over the top as some have said where. She is liberal and makes no bones about it, but she debates honestly and respectfully, while not taking spin. Her show is an opinion show, not straight news, but within that constraint she strives to be honest.

    It was distributed for conference without any of the justices calling for a response from the respondents, which means that SCOTUS has already decided to deny cert.

    There’s always the exceedingly faint hope that one of the justices will attach a pithy comment, like “Denied, Dismissed, and Don’t file this crap again. Obama is a natural born citizen.”

    Orly goes after Gary Kreep:

    Too much to copy from her post, but this is how it ends:

    “California attorney Gary Kreep put his name and California bar license under this garbage and this attorney might become a judge in the near future. This is absolutely frightening. It is mind boggling that a person like this will be allowed to become a judge.
    If Kreep becomes a judge, lives of multiple individuals can be ruined. Many lives are affected even now, with him being an attorney. This matter requires urgent investigation, as Kreep might become a judge in near future. If he could show zero conscience, zero integrity and zero moral values in attacking multiple innocent individuals with a bogus law suit, colluding with a dangerous criminal and another attorney without ethics, he can inflict much more damage to the society as a judge. While I agreed with the subject matter of some other cases brought by Kreep, his latest actions are so outrageous that I cannot be silent and an urgent attention is needed.
    I trust the disciplinary counsel of the CA bar with review this matter with the outmost urgency.”

    By the almost perfect 50/50 split, it is clear that most people who voted between Peed and Kreep put as much thought into their decision as in flipping a coin.

    I pay pretty close attention to politics and I don’t recall seeing any information about either candidate before the election. Plenty afterwards though. Then again, with the endless onslaught of political ads, phone calls and fliers, I tuned most of it out so maybe the info was there and I missed it.

    Isn’t there an old lawyer’s trick of hiding significant information in a mountain of useless claptrap? This may be a case in point. Now with billions to be spent in the next few months on the presidential election what we have considered mountains will soon look like molehills.
