Colbert Shows The Government Shutdown IS 'Some Damn Game'

To mark the Government shutdown's one-week anniversary, Stephen Colbert distilled our nation's woes into something we can all get behind: a hilarious board game.

After catching up on the latest developments in "President Obama's" shutdown (during which the Republicans in Congress have been nothing but flexible), Colbert found the one thing that both sides can agree on: the shutdown is not a game -- or, "some damn game" -- as Speaker Boehner put it.

But that's where everyone's wrong. As Colbert shows in the clip above, "Not A Game," The Government Shutdown Home Game, perfectly captures the country's current frustrations. Watch the video above to see how it's played.
