Cheering for Disaster

For anyone still willing to give the Tea Party the benefit of the doubt and believe that they are small-government advocates and not anti-government advocates, I give you the following quote from an article in the Washington Post:
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.
Does one cheer for something he wishes didn't have to happen?
