Slavoj Zizek Interviewed (sort of) by Charlie Rose

Charlie Rose did the right thing for the most part and allowed the Slavoj Zizek to engage in his usual monologue - it would have been better if Rose would have simply allowed him to go - the few times Rose interrupted seemed like an effort to show his own intelligence or knowledge, which is always a bad thing in an interviewer.

Great interview. I loved the gestures, but they brought up perhaps a relevant question for me: Does cocaine play a role in this man's life, or what?

According to comments at C. Rose's site, Zizek had a cold when he spoke at OWS and when he did this interview - so I think that explains the nose issue.

He always touches his nose when he talks. He's not on drugs. He's just a freak of nature. And a beautiful one.
