So state GOP chair John Herrington wants to be national chair (Nov. 14). Why not! Curt Pringle (R-Garden Grove)blows the Assembly races and gets made minority leader and Rob Hurtt (R-Garden Grove) gives away a precious Senate seat and is still in charge of Republican state Senate campaigns. Having been on the losing end as an Orange County Democrat so often, I now realize I could have failed my way to the presidency as a Republican by now. MIKE POTTS Rancho Santa Margarita

Westminster City Councilman Andy Quach and Assemblyman Van Tran (R-Garden Grove) are two of Orange County's most prominent Vietnamese American elected officials. Quach found himself on the defensive this week regarding his recent arrest on suspicion of drunk driving, and Tran deflected criticism of his involvement during the police investigation. Some have called for Quach to step down. Others have rallied around him and said the incident should not tarnish his record.

It is very interesting that Rep. Bob Dornan (R-Garden Grove) raised and spent more money in 1994 than the combined total of the other five members of the Orange County delegation. If Congressmen Cox, Packard and Rohrabacher all spent less than $160,000 each, why was it necessary for Congressman Dornan to spend 10 times more? It would be informative if Congressman Dornan would detail exactly how the money was spent. DON ELMORE Huntington Beach

Since Rep. Robert K. Dornan (R-Garden Grove) had such an illuminating experience being "disabled," perhaps he could learn from this and place himself more often in other people's shoes--those with other views on abortion or homosexuality, for example. Then he might not be so quick to judge and denigrate others because he might actually begin to appreciate, respect and see similarities between himself and others who have different viewpoints. One can always hope for a miracle. SUSAN PERLSON, Brea

Instead of calling their new group WISH (Women in the Senate and House), they ought to be called WIMPS! Just what kind of power does Robert K. Dornan (R-Garden Grove) have that he can make these women cower and forget that their goal is to provide assistance to women seeking election? As long as women in politics let entrenched, powerful politicians call the shots and allow partisan politics to take precedence over women's issues, we can expect to remain second-class citizens in the House and Senate.

Rep. Bob Dornan (R-Garden Grove) asks us to read his four "brief thoughts" (letter, July 20) on how he's been victimized by his political opponents and how The Times is an accessory to the "crime" ("The Dornans Go Public With Private Pain," June 24). After his merciless tirade against the Clintons, we can only assume that this guy is joking. It seems to be acceptable for Dornan to dredge up Bill Clinton's activities during college years but no one should question documented charges that holier-than-thou Dornan, the bastion of "family values," beats his wife.

Re "Unhealthy Legislative Fumes," editorial, March 4: If The Times is going to run muddled editorials defending the present practices of the South Coast Air Quality Management District, you should at least provide space on the obituary page for all of the jobs that this monster bureaucracy has killed over the years. Assembly Speaker Curt Pringle (R-Garden Grove) has courageously vowed to make the AQMD public enemy No. 1 during his tenure. For our part, we are offering legislation to make the AQMD more accountable to voters for its policy decisions and to taxpayers for the way it spends their money.

The picture of Rep. Robert Dornan (R-Garden Grove) appearing in The Times (Aug. 23) shows a close resemblance to a political bully named Fidel Castro. The similarity, however, is more than skin deep. When an elderly woman attempted to criticize Dornan's support of U.S. intervention in Central America, he enjoyed displaying his machismo with the threat, "Yell once more and your ass is going to be thrown out!" Dornan has everything it takes to be a successful dictator; he undoubtedly would be at home wearing battle fatigues in Congress.

Make no mistake. Bob Dole is well on his way to becoming the next President of the United States. I do not believe in polls from liberal newspapers with their biased agendas. I do believe in the record number of positive phone calls we are receiving at the Republican Party of Orange County headquarters. The enthusiasm is truly overwhelming. Our phones are ringing off the hook. We've had to recruit more people to help answer the phones so that we do not miss the calls of the thousands in Orange County who are clamoring to volunteer to elect Bob Dole and un-elect Bill Clinton.

About the Sept. 27 piece "Dornan May Run for Both White House, House in '96": First, in all the myriad straw polls over the last eight months, I believe only once did I finish, as you report, "at the bottom of the pack." There are always three or four trailing me, the valiant souls. Second, notwithstanding your newspaper's unending compulsion to seek out my critics, however insignificant the critic may be, a better news strategy might be to talk to persons who know the big picture.

Re "League of Women Voters Accused of Bias," May 5: Assemblyman Curt Pringle (R-Garden Grove) and like-minded Republicans place themselves in interesting company when they attack the League of Women Voters for taking a stand in support of Measure R, the half-cent sales tax increase Orange County voters must decide on June 27. It was only a few years ago that redoubtable Assembly Speaker Willie Brown (D-San Francisco) was railing against the league for its position on reapportionment, and suggesting that we all return to our kitchens!

Re "Dornan Decries Moral Decay in Presidential Bid," April 14: No wonder our Rep. Robert K. Dornan (R-Garden Grove) has a jaundiced view of things. Considering the published list of organizations he has belonged to over the years, he could not have thought differently. He was right in there pitching for some of the causes that helped bring about the "cultural meltdown" he decries. NORMAN T. VICK Seal Beach Three cheers for B-1 Bob Dornan! I admired his attack on "the filth on talk shows."

In the Orange County section (Feb. 8), Rep. Robert K. Dornan (R-Garden Grove) stated the following: "His (Ron Kovic's) stands are the antithesis of John Wayne. . . . This guy has attacked everything John Wayne stood for." Mr. Dornan's statement is about the most condescending remark I have ever heard from any politician. Does he really think his constituents should compare Ron Kovic to John Wayne? How naive and gullible does he really think his constituency is? Mr. Kovic is confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life because of his love for this country.

I took notice in your coverage of the Democrat convention in Orange County (March 6) that my former opponent of 1984 had a few nasty things to say about me. Interesting that Jerry Patterson, a paid lobbyist for the last 10 years, and who most occasionally asks for time with members of Congress including myself, would burn his bridges this way. Plus, his wife is running for supervisor! After his congressional election defeat, we're told Jerry's choice of soothing reading material was Elizabeth Kubler-Ross' "On Death and Dying."
