evil maybe, genius no
Gordon should just stare at Batman without ever turning away or even blinking for as long as he can. Make Batman uncomfortable because he wants to leave, but he can't just say, "See ya" and take off like a normal person. If Gordon really holds it up, maybe he can force Batman into wasting one of his ninja Bat-smoke pellets to make his exit from Gordon's office.
Somebody should write that as one of the short Legends of the Dark Knight digital comics.

I'd read that.

lol, me too.
I'm thinking Batman is the type of dude that came up with lenses first and foremost to avoid awkward eye contact. We need to see him actively being made uncomfortable.
I like how Gordon sees Valley behind him and is like "dude something's wrong!"
