What say to a diavlog between the onlie begetters of, respectively, The Grand Jihad and The Myth of Modern Jihad?

It might be interesting, but I find McCarthy so completely insane that I doubt putting him in a DV would be worth the slight validation of his craziness. Also, this should be in the "New Diavloggers we'd like to see" thread (http://bloggingheads.tv/forum/showthread.php?t=1813).

Second.

Besides, another issue here is the perennial problem of pairing a moderately liberal, pragmatic person who is genuinely interested in others' perspectives with an extremist zealot who cares only about yelling about his delusions -- not only is Crazy Andy not entitled to a platform on any respectable website, you also wouldn't have in this pairing someone who would give him the beatdown he deserves. I would dread Bob trying to find ways to murmur "you may have a point there."
