Publishing magnate Steve Forbes, the fastest rising star on the Republican presidential horizon, paid the penalty for his recent campaign gains Saturday when he came under sharp attack from several of his rivals at a nationally televised debate here. With the crucial Iowa caucuses four weeks away, the 90-minute forum featuring nine candidates also was marked by derisive sniping between Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, the GOP front-runner, and Sen. Phil Gramm of Texas. Former Tennessee Gov.

Your article "Dole Campaign Cashes In on Its Front-Runner Image" (July 28) paints an ugly but enlightening picture of American politics. Bob Dole's $1,000-a-plate parties and Bill Clinton's fund-raisers promising private meetings with the President in exchange for $100,000 contributions demonstrate how far we are from a true democracy in this country. Under a system where, as the Dole aides say, contributors "view writing a check as a sound investment," the obvious question must be, what happens to those people without the money to invest?

After Sen. Bob Dole led Republicans in an attempt to defeat the deficit reduction bill, perhaps the expression "on the dole" should be redefined from welfare for the poor to welfare for the rich. JEROLD DRUCKER Tarzana

I've been reading Sen. Bob Dole's (R-Kan.) comments on two issues and I need to get the facts straight. Throughout the campaign, President Bush and Vice President Quayle have called Bill Clinton a liar for not talking openly about his whereabouts over 20 years ago, but now that President Bush has been caught lying about his "non-involvement" in the Iran-Contra affairs, Dole becomes outraged (Nov. 9). Is it just me, or is there a double standard here? (Senate minority leader)

I've observed Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) on several TV discussion programs and I am now convinced that Dukakis has a secret supporter. I've seldom seen a person so totally uncomfortable as Dole appears to be when he is asked to defend the type of campaign Bush and Dan Quayle are waging. As a loyal Republican the best he can do is maintain that distortions and half-truths are OK as long as they work. I admire Dole and cringe along with him as he is forced to uphold a policy and candidates that he obviously doesn't agree with.

Academy Awards emcee Whoopi Goldberg would like to see the emasculation of Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.). Dole has already given his arm and almost his life for his country and the American people. What has Goldberg ever given anyone? RAYMOND J. LINKE La Canada If the emcee had been a white male and had made an offensive remark about a black female, suggesting that she be sexually mutilated, I wonder what the reaction might have been. Dole is a handicapped American war veteran who deserves far more respect than Goldberg gave him the night of the Academy Awards.

When Dan Quayle attacked TV's "Murphy Brown" in 1992 because the lead character was having a baby out of wedlock, Hollywood's reaction was one of mockery and anger. Quayle, then the vice president, was even roasted on the Emmy Awards show in an open display of hostility. When Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole attacked sex and violence in TV, movies and music last week, there was another strong reaction of anger, and a touch of mockery, from many in the show business world.

Get ready for more caricatures of a politician with grayish, big hair and a pudgy face. Except now Newt Gingrich, not Bill Clinton, may be dominating the editorial cartoons. "It'll be great drawing a Speaker of the House named after a lizard," laughed Steve Benson of The Arizona Republic. Well, actually a newt is an amphibian. But this isn't rocket science. "Newt's cut out of the mold cartoonists like. There's that shock of hair, and he speaks his mind without much forethought," Benson added.
