    She, and some of the newer members, are sort of like Tea Party members of the GOP as far as I can tell. There is not really a firm movement behind them but it is similar sort of zeal with some issues that seem to be overblown.

I think a good analogy can be made of between the Tea Party and the Justice Democrats. Of course, it's more like a bizarro mirror image -- because the Tea Party was a bogus movement that was almost immediately co-opted by guys like the Koch Bros. It's funny that Republicans became small government libertarians the second Obama took office. What a complete sham.

That said, under the Tea Party movement, Republicans gained 1000 seats, took control of the House and Senate, got two SCOTUS appointments and won the presidency.
