The Debt Ceiling Debate As A Fairy Tale: Colbert Re-tells The Billy Goats Gruff

It's a couple of days old, but too good not to share. Stephen Colbert likens the debt ceiling debate and negotiations to a fairy tale, specifically The Billy Goats Gruff.

It's hard to argue that the Democratic goats in Washington appear to be completely unaware that they are not dealing with reasonable people who share the common goal of what's best for the country. No, the Republican Party are nothing but trolls who view the welfare of the country as acceptable collateral damage in their pursuit of their agenda.
