He’ll never manage the Sharon-look: that perfect blend of dull psychopathy, pure lethality, and forward motion. Sharon lived in the moment, the now, of non-reflective domination, what’s inaccurately called “apish.” He always seemed poised to tear into the nearest human who dared contradict him with his teeth, if he were blocked from turning masses of humans into pools of blood with jets or troops.
Bibi is nothing in comparison. He always looks as if he’s about to dodge a sudden blow, and his bravado seems fueled by an stunned awareness that somehow he’s gotten away with it so far. I have no doubt he’d collapse like a ruptured balloon at the first pushback with any substance, and although all that’d do is reconfigure the current oligarchy of psychopaths in the Israeli cabinet, I’d still dearly love to be there for it.
