As Crimea remains in the clutches of Russian President Vladimir Putin, the world is anxious to know Putin's next move. For our nation's media outlets, this anxiety has manifested itself in a desperate analysis of Putin's body language. The blank stare, the stiff neck, the half nudity, what does it mean?!?!?!!!!?????

As "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart said on Tuesday night's program, "He is the body language equivalent of tweeting in all caps." And, according to Stewart's analysis, "the message is: 'I'm a nutbird!'"
