The polls this morning show that around 70% of Americans oppose the GOP shutdown of the U.S. government. Whoops! Well, I guess that since the Republicans insist that the American people need to be listened to, they’ll immediately apologize and vote to fund the government without any delay or complications.

On the off chance that they don’t do this by the end of the day, as the GOP and Tea Party sink slowly into the West, we’ve compiled a variety of scenes from movies that might help explain to the GOP where they really are and how their actions are sealing their fate.

First we have John Boehner and the Republicans in The House helming their party:


John Boehner and Ted Cruz driving off into the sunset after the government shutdown:


The GOP trying to shoot an arrow through the heart of Obamacare:


The GOP forced to swallow the consequences of their actions:


Tea Partiers riding their anti-government agenda as far as they can:


No matter what genre a GOP/Tea Party film is, it’s always a disaster movie.
