Oh my. The New York Daily News marked the first government shutdown in 17 years on Tuesday with a cover that parodies a hit political drama and mocks House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH).

Under the headline "House of Turds," the latest cover shows Boehner seated at the Lincoln Memorial with blood dripping from his hands -- a send-up of the popular Netflix series "House of Cards."
