Asking a neoconservative a question
I sent the below e-mail to Jonathan Tobin, Commentary’s
executive editor and the chief writer of its blog
Dear Mr. Tobin:
I have a very simple, direct question for you.
You supported Obama when he pushed Mubarak out of power and toppled the Mubarak regime.
Do you still think that toppling Mubarak was a good idea?
New York City
Guess what? Tobin hasn’t replied.
Here’s Tobin’s page. There is a photo of him there:
His face strikes me as strangely clueless. In particular, his eyes have a disconcertingly vague, unfocused look. He seems like a man permanently abstracted from reality. Which would make him a fit representative of the neocons.

I agree with you about Tobin’s picture. It’s not only the eyes, but the weak set of the mouth.

I am often struck by how much information is communicated in a photograph of a person’s face. For example, the other day I saw a picture of the actor Ashton Kutcher dressed like Steve Jobs, whom he is playing in a film. Though there is a superficial resemblance, Jobs had an intense intelligence in his eyes while Kutcher’s gaze is that of a not-very-bright fellow, rendering him totally unsuited for the role.
