Colbert Compares Government Shutdown To 'Breaking Bad' Finale, And It's Perfect

Stephen Colbert has long been waiting for this day to come: A day with no federal government. And it just so happens that he was able to draw plenty of conclusions between the current shutdown and Sunday's "Breaking Bad" finale.

He's been glued to his seat ever since he first started paying attention to the American government. "It started out as a highly sympathetic character in the 1770s, but in just 237 seasons, it's transformed into a egotistical, self-destructive maniac." Sound familiar?
