Dribs and drabs from the notebookUpset by all the polls saying President Clinton's a lock to be re-elected Tuesday? Feel like dishing a little Clinton dirt? Check out tomorrow's "The Zoh Show" on WCBM-AM (680) for an interview with David Brock, author of "The Seduction of Hillary Clinton."Brock's credentials as a conservative and a Clinton basher are well documented. Once described by Texas columnist Molly Ivins as "that wretched little right-wing reporter," he's been on Hillary's case for a good while, reporting on her role in Travelgate and her supposed connections in the suicide of Vincent Foster.

BOSTON - What do we say now? I told you so? It has been nearly 10 years since Anita Hill was called from her Oklahoma campus to testify on Clarence Thomas' nomination to the Supreme Court. It has been nearly a decade since those hearings set off a stunning national furor about sexual harassment, about what he said and she said. Had Mr. Thomas, the former head of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, trod on a woman's rights? Had he harassed her with porn talk? Was she out to get him?

THE REAL ANITA HILL: THE UNTOLD STORY.David Brock. Free Press/Macmillan. 387 pages. $24.95. America's public discourse is being cheapened (it may already have lost most of its basic value) because of the barren superficiality of its content and the heavy-handed intolerance of its moral judgment. Now comes more proof: this new book by David Brock, which has quickly become the new political manifesto of America's Right.Abundantly blessed by the Right-thinking intelligentsia, from columnist-TV commentator George Will to the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal, the Brock book is an important political document -- partly because of its emerging role as a call to ideological arms, but mainly because it illustrates in a blatant way all that has gone wrong with what passes for the discourse of public affairs today.

BOSTON -- Mind you, the pope got half-a-million bucks more for his book. But then John Paul II is infallible, which was worth something extra. Besides, anyone who published the pontiff could figure that if the book didn't make back the advance -- and it didn't -- the company still had better access to Paradise. What exactly was Simon & Schuster, the child of Viacom, praying for when the publishers anted up some 8 million bucks for the memoirs of Hillary Rodham Clinton? A marketing miracle?

Boston. -- It's been a year and a half since Clarence Thomas escaped from what he called ''a high-tech lynching'' and went off to the Supreme Court to lick his wounds, nurse his grievances and decide the law of the land.Occasionally during this time, a few words have escaped from behind the pillars of the court. The justice has been described as deeply embittered, uncomfortable in public, and claustrophobic in his role. His wife has told one magazine, ominously, that he owed nothing as a justice to the groups that had opposed him.This spring he came out of his black-robed shell only to complain -- again -- about the terrible burden he has carried as a black conservative.

"Ah, he'll be a picnic," R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. had said just a few weeks before the presidential inauguration of Bill Clinton, during a brief trek back to his native Chicago.Well, last week it was as if Mr. Tyrrell, a proud raconteur and provocateur, was having a picnic in which the wieners were exploding on the grill, ketchup bottles were flying and furious guests were racing for cover.Mr. Tyrrell is founder and editor in chief of the American Spectator, an acerbic, nervy, at times all-too brazen, political monthly of conservative bent whose circulation is soaring and is assured of going even higher after inspiring the biggest bimbo eruption to engulf Bill Clinton.
