Re "McClintock feeds at pension trough" (Dan Morain, Forum, Aug. 25): With his never-ending attacks on Rep. Tom McClintock, Dan Morain has become the Javert of The Bee's editorial board with McClintock his Valjean. Such relentless hounding reveals a vengeful, thin skinned personality who will never forgive McClintock for daring to defend himself in a column in which he very effectively "deconstructed" the Bee's senior editor.
If indeed McClintock were to spotted at the "pension trough," he would be vastly outnumbered by members of the opposing party. That The Bee's readers should be repeatedly subjected to such petty fare is but one further example of the its unswerving partisan agenda. Devoting so much attention to the pension of one Republican is just part of the cover up and avoid having to defend the indefensible -- the lack of leadership, incompetence and corruption of the current administration.
