Texas: Eldridge Cleaver was actually a very bright guy. One of the few people in my memory who held his own in debate with Wm. F. Buckley. He proved how smart he was when he eventually became a conservative Republican. Yes, it's true. After he traveled round the world and got a first-hand look at leftist countries, he saw what cesspools they were, became a born-again Christian and a Republican. Youse can look it up.
