Schooling Rose

It's a strange world, and when I find myself applauding Bill Maher I know it's getting even stranger. Maher was recently on the Charlie Rose show and the conversation got around to Islam, and how, in Rose's view, Islam was no different than Christianity in terms of the violence it promotes. Maher, who has over the years been no fan of Christianity, nevertheless takes Rose to school on the matter.

Rose obviously doesn't know much about Islam and seems impervious to instruction, resorting instead to mouthing liberal platitudes about "moderate Muslims." Maher, though, will have none of Rose's poppycock.

Take a look:
By the way, I haven't heard Charlie Rose much before. Is he always as goofy as he sounds in this clip?
