How about a Radical Republican Faction controlling the GOP? It work well during the Civil War Era.
CALLER: — many of the speakers the other day at the rally spoke to that point. And a lot of the people I spoke with were Democrats that are disgusted with Obama, and to a person the Republicans that I spoke with were just fed up with government in general. There was a lot of anger at the Bush administration. They had all the levers of power at their disposal and they did nothing. They did not represent us. There’s just real anger out there, and so I really believe that this movement is bigger than the political parties.

The other, the (R)ush-(N)ewt-(C)heney tag team, is providing the real muscle as the Republican right begins to build traction in taking on President Obama and the Democrats.
