harvey pekar vs david letterman...

they re-created some of this in the 'american splendor' movie, but seeing the real footage is kind of amazing. i wish this had the whole interview, but instead it picks up pretty much once the fight has begun. pekar, of course, is making some very reasonable political statements and trying to create a dialogue. letterman is acting like a prick and seems incensed that pekar is actually trying to say something and not just be the target of a bunch of demeaning jokes...
