I'm Rooting For Shut-Down

"Are [Democrats] really prepared to close the government in order to stop drilling?" Gingrich asked. "Because I think the country will find that to be a suicidal strategy."
That's from CNN. Let's see, it appears we'll either get lower gas prices or government shut down for the fall. As nice as lower gas prices would be...

Addendum: The Intrade probability of the lift on the oil drilling ban rose significantly with this, and as of 1:07 p.m. on 8/8/2008 is trading at 49 cents on the dollar. It stands to reason there is roughly a 50/50 shot of a government shut down.

Is he suggesting the country will simply fall apart if government shuts down? hah.
