A place we can discuss, bloviate and debate issues and topics of interest.
This guy's obsession with The Union, it's management, and day to day reporting is way beyond funny. It is, and should be, embarrassing to him, his family, and anyone who cares about him, if there is anyone left. If there is anyone who cares about the man, get him some help soon.
OMG! That is funny. I wonder if Jeff Pelline has carpal tunnel syndrome from all of the time spent surfing the internet while stalking his adversaries (note the wrist brace on the mouse hand in the cartoon).
I find it interesting and revealing that he generates way more interest and posts here with people mocking him, than he generates at his own little blog. I tried to post on his blog once and he was incredibly rude and snarky to me. Never again. This cartoon kind of says it all.
I am still laughing.
As Cartman likes to glee... "SWEET!"This covers it:http://barrypruett.blogspot.com/2014/02/jeff-pelline-creating-divisiveness-in.html
Hey! It ain't easy being sleazy! Can any of you good old boys claim to be an award winning journalist? Any of you ever park next to Herb Caen? Got a boat? I didn't think so. None of you are even a pimple on my...bloated face! If you don't stop being mean to me I am going to...take my magazine, my friends Annie, Windy, and Gloria and move back to Berkeley where two faced hypocrites are popular. You will miss me when I'm gone. Or maybe not! LOL!
Small towns are a hoot! Personal ridiculing and bullying me will not force me to stop writing about The Union. The latest reports indicate that is shifting its printing to Sacramento (for the first time in 150 years) and “outsourcing” jobs. Yikes.No....feel free to scribble about any subject...it's all worthy of ridicule....and as always...YIKES...err....LOL!
I often see the name “Jeff Pelline” appearing on Todd’s blog in one form or another. An aspiring (albeit unqualified) journalist, Jeff lost his only job here at the local "fish wrap". Must have been humiliating. Nobody can remember when anybody had been fired so decisively. Managment spoke, but Jeff can’t let it go. He should.
I often see the name “Jeff Pelline” appearing on Todd’s blog in one form or another.

Nobody can remember when anybody had been reduced to the status of Former Union Editor so decisively. Management spoke, but Jeff can’t let it go. He should.Todd you should probably delete my earlier insomniac post at 3:10....jeffy is back in lawsuit mode....saw that he threatened Russ about a worm farm and defamation...two words I don't usually associate or some such nonsense...worm farm...really??? Anyway unless you want to spend a better part of your day volleying jeffys tear stained e-mails back and forth you should probably just erase it
Nothing yet fish.
Oh it's coming....he can't help himself!
fish, am I going to have to call your lawyer again? You know I don't like it when you are mean to me. Don't make me subpoena my best friend Jeff Ackerman, and all of my other good friends at The Union to come and testify about how I really was loved and respected by all of my fellow employees. The best part about being popular at work is that you can count on your many friends to stand up and support you when you need them to. I know I can count on my good friend Jim Hemig to run a series of stories telling the world about what a great and benevolent person I was in my former best job I ever had. The reason the details of my termination is secret is because of the great sorrow that would have consumed everyone in the building. We needed to avoid that for the good of my beloved employer. I have a new position now, as the volunteer proofreader. I scan everything that is written to make sure there are no errors. Perhaps you have seen some of my recent work. I am proud of the daily incessant contributions I make to my former employer, and would appreciate it if you would would give me the respect that I deserve. And by the way, I am offering a reward for the name of the person who drew the above cartoon of me. If I can find out who is responsible for this slander I will.....I will stalk them mercilessly into submission. Nothing can be printed unless I approve it first, so don't forget who you are dealing with. ROFLMFAO!
Annie Fannie wants you TFF. Give in please!
Fired (def): Involuntary termination from employment at the hands of the employer. Based upon Jeff's own version of the facts of his departure from The Union, he was involuntarily terminated at the hands of Jeff Ackerman. In other words, Pelline was fired. Pelline just does not like you using the word so he threatens you. Jeff needs to let it go...he is not going to sue anybody.
I was just trying to save Todd the aggravation of the "shotgun blast" of whiny e-mails from the FUE. I didn't think that there was anything actionable.Anyway...what do you know...you went to law school in Indiana of all places. ;-)
I bet "the 'shotgun blast' of whiny e-mails" stopped.
I think you really get under the skin of Pelline Barry. Just because you are much smarter and more popular than him frosts his cajones. LOL!
He certainly does seem to be rather frosted today. I do not know what I said to set him off, but it does not take much these days.
I know...lowly Indiana. A lawsuit will do only one thing. It will prove conclusively that which Pelline does not want known. A deposition of Jeff Ackerman in the public record!? Are you kidding?
How was the time away.....you ran away to hide from "The Storm of the Century" only to return to "The Storm of the Century" (Okay...I exaggerate a little)?
What a hoot! I checked out his latest post on the "blog noone reads" and he is citing a lawsuit by the hoaxster Mann (of AGW hockey stick repute) against Mark Steyn. Steyn called the theory a fraud and Mann sued. Steyn will win but as we know the legal system takes forever. Apparently that post by the FUE is meant to intimidate. My goodness, the man is obsessed!
The political “circle of stupid” is getting, well, stupider....and with each day you get more shrill. I now know why your sockpuppets are all female....you have three or four repressed female personalities (Gloria, Windy, Annie....!) all trapped inside that flabby carcass with the jeffy personality.Todd is praising Barry for being “smart and popular” on his blog, and Russ is praising Steyn’s legal “victory” on the one hand, while quietly editing his earlier post that recklessly used the word “fraudulent” without providing any evidence. So what....and hey.. this charge is ever funnier based on all the surreptitious editing that we watch you do. You can't even insult us properly! The "circle of stupid" comment...plagiarised from Frisch. The "FUC" coined in response to "FUE"....stolen from Chip Wilder.....weak sauce jeffy.I look forward to hearing more from the “circle of stupid” in the new year. Some topics: The Union shutting down its printing plant and “outsourcing” local jobs to Sacramento, Life in Roseburg, Ore., vs here; the local tea party’s waning influence, and our county’s “purple” politics. And even though I'm sure most of the "circle" finds you increasingly tedious we are here to counter your endless whiny blather. Consider it a public service. And jeffy....I'm guessing that all that purple you see....well those are your feet. Diabetes....nothing to trifle with!What a bunch of boobs.Again.....you probably shouldn't compose sentences when you can see yourself in the mirror! Those boobs...they're yours too! I really they aren't purple too!They all will get signed copies of my book, “The State of Jefferson,” because I couldn’t have written it without the material they all provided. You can’t make this stuff up. LOL.I eagerly look forward to reading and critiquing your tripe.....hardbound....it should give me comedic material for the next five years!...and as always LOL.
I do not understand all of this. Who are thse people? What I know of Jeffereson is that he was a great president, but not as great as Hamilton or Jackson.
Duh! Hamilton was never president.
" The "circle of stupid" comment...plagiarised from Frisch. The "FUC" coined in response to "FUE"....stolen from Chip Wilder.....weak sauce jeffy." perhaps.. but pretty funny none-the-less and pretty right on the money.
Oh please....the FUC has a certain charm because it plays off everybody's favorite four letter word that ends in "k". The "circle of stupid" is exactly what I'd expect from Frisch who looks either like a post menopausal secretary or a guy presiding over a Salem Witch Trial. The more general point is that the best that the great wordsmith, the award winning journalist with multiple degrees until this point has been able to muster is...."...your mother wears army boots!" and "....all hat, no cattle!" (that too pilfered from a better writer) as examples devastating riposte! Sorry, not going to cut it if you are as odious a jerk as our little jeffy!
One person today clicked on Pelline's link to my blog. One. Nobody is listening to him. Ho hum.
If Pelline has a link to your blog and only one person clicked on it, doesn't that mean that none of his readers want to read your drivel? Your logic is illogical.
casual observer, not conclusive that no one wants to visit Barry's site. If no one visits SFR, no one will know there is a link to Barry. Since the FUE has no friends or defenders, you must be him. Don't you have some proof reading to do?
Who did the cartoon? Lefty Jeffy should appreciate the kind portrayal! ;-) I would expect some more purple prose over in liberal lament land behind this. Perhaps a novel legal attack from lefty jeffy, he could declare himself a protected class (of 1) and claim the west county is discriminating against him. He will call it pellineophobic behavior and us pellineophobics are engaged in hate speech against a protected class (pending certification). He could get a farcebook page to vent about his bruised ego and actually draw some traffic, of course they will be laughing at him more than they do now. Perhaps there will be some truth in advertising and he will change the name of his literary give away to the Sierra Whiner. I am really going to piss off the lefty set now, wait for it.....MERRY CHRISTMAS!
"pellineophobic behavior"... SWEET! LOL, LOL, LOL
Now that's funny Don. Excellent! and Merry Christmas!
Are you guys saying that I am a shallow, hypocritical, two faced, pathetic excuse for a man? Do you really think that I was terminated from the best job I ever had because most of my fellow employees hated me, and morale in the office was plummeting? Do you also think that I begged my boss to not reveal the reason for my termination so it wouldn't destroy my reputation in the community? Is it possible that I immediately embarked on a campaign to denigrate my former boss who tried to help me save my reputation? If these things are true, would this make me the absolute worst human being you know, and totally deserving of the scorn and derision that is directed my way? Why can't we all just get along? What is wrong with all of you?
Wow. If that is what really happened, that Pelline begged his boss not to reveal the real reason for his firing and then embarked on his current jihad against The Union, then Pelline is a horrible, horrible person. Unbelievable.
What a dirtbag. This makes one wonder the type of nasty and hateful person Peline is. He cannot even accept responsibility for his own firing, but has to blame his employer. I have heard some horror stories about the man while he was at The Union. They probably had a party after Ackerman sacked him. -Richard Do (aka dickie do)
Is that dickie do, as in dickie do and the don'ts?
Almost. A refernce to the dickie do gut. My gut sticks out more than my "dickie do".
Now that could be a lot of men! LOL!
That is outrageous! Not surprising, given what we have seen from the man in the past few years.
It is a good thing that Pelline is around or there would be no posts to this blog. Dragon's Breath is more like a gross fart, it empties the room except for those who want to savor the aroma.
Why thanks for the compliment. Do you realize how you fell into your trap? Smelline? What a hoot!
Pelline is one sick, sad, twisted, egocentric, obsessed, arrogant, obese, narcissistic stalker. Betting he had no friends in school, was shunned and picked on by the other kids and always got picked last for any team sports. His obsession and endless childish rants against The Union newspaper and Barry Pruett provide a clear picture of how lost this guy is. Must be embarrassing for his family and friends, if he has any. Bob Crabb's "Cartman cartoon" about this guy is 100% spot on.
Real name thank you.
