Re "McClintock feeds at pension trough" (Dan Morain, Forum, Aug. 25): What's the point? This mean-spirited and personal attack only demeans Dan Morain and your newspaper.
Tom McClintock was honestly and fairly elected and is serving our country. His viewpoints and votes, while conservative, serve our system well as checks and balances should. Cheap, biased attacks such as this serve no purpose.
It would be vastly better for our community to comment on local and topical events. How about focusing now on our unprincipled and incompetent state legislators who are now en masse soliciting money while in session? And, sure they will say that money gifts don't influence votes! Yeah, right! There is a word that describes people who sell themselves for money. You might look it up.
