House Republicans Openly Cheer Prospect of Government Shutdown

Despite all of their public protestations, it looks like House GOPers are itching for a government shutdown in private.  As reported in the Washington Post this morning:

House Republicans huddled late Monday and, according to a GOP aide, gave the speaker an ovation when he informed them that he was advising the House Administration Committee to begin preparing for a possible shutdown. That process includes alerting lawmakers and senior staff about which employees would not report to work if no agreement is reached.
