I think it frightens me that political discourse of this kind would not be possible in our day and age, that a dude as far right as William Buckley, who used his gifts of rhetoric to try to embarrass and belittle opponents, could have a somewhat civilized (though probably, in the end, unproductive) discussion with Huey Newton.
Buckley has his talons out even before Huey has said a word. Huey comes off as nerdy, a bit silly-sounding. His voice is disarmingly adenoidal. But underneath all that is a steely confidence you can sense just below the surface. Not to mention a huge and complex mind. What Huey says towards the end about contradiction gives me chills every time I hear it. Deep, deep shit.
