So what's up with the punditocracy pooping all over Stewart's performance? Everything I read mentions him as being "tame," "boring," and "falling flat." What the hell are you talking about? Stewart was the biggest iconoclast the Academy Awards has had up there up there in years. Didn't any of these wankers see his response to that sanctimonious montage of films tackling controversial subjects when he looked at the camera, donned that signature smirk, and said,
"And the best part was, none of those issues was ever a problem again."
