Here (sorry, no embed), Buckley talks about Getting it Right just after its release in 2003. His introduction to the book is great, covering "the conservative scene" of the 1950s. During question time, an audience member from AP informs him that Daniel Patrick Moynihan has died and asks Buckley for a few words.
Added bonus. William F. Buckley objects to being called a "crypto-Nazi" by Gore Vidal and threatens to hit him so hard that he will "stay plastered." Over the years Buckley's phrasing has been twisted into "stay stoned."
Gore Vidal: As far as I'm concerned, the only sort of pro-crypto-Nazi I can think of is yourself.Only included because I have been looking for this clip for years and finally found it.
William F. Buckley: Now listen, you queer, stop calling me a crypto-Nazi, or I'll sock you in your god damn face and you'll stay plastered.
Still looking for a speech Buckley gave about how "the Left has won" in our society.
