Exactly - it's happened a lot, and sometime it *stays split* but often it's reabsorbed.
The Tea Party, however - isn't an official split from the Reps, it's a movement that became more than that.
Well, I see it as less of a split and more of a faction within the GOP. I think the Tea Partiers will be a more-or-less permanent faction that will mostly register with the Republican Party and vote for the Republican, except when they decide to vote for Independent Tea Partiers who don't get past the GOP primary. That's my prediction for them.
