I'd like to have seen the real debate

Naomi Klein is definitely cute, but her latest book practically defames Milton Friedman, and it would have been good to see her actually have to confront him in real life about her misconceptions and economic and historical ignorance. Given that this debate cannot happen, it is amusing to see this mashup:

I enjoy it as it shows Klein's complacency in front of a friendly audience, and utter unwillingness to confront difficult ideas in that context. The interspersed snippets of Friedman show the pixie mind at work. Of course for me this is a non-debate. Klein is nice eye candy but not something that engages the mind.
