The Tea Party: Purges just like the Commies?

The Tea Party seems to have done another "purge". It makes me wonder if this is an analogous example of the purges that took place in the early days of the USSR, as well as the "Great Purge" that took place in the Soviet Union in 1937-38.

The early purges apparently were based on loyalty questions, making sure that the person in question (or organization) was cleaving closely enough to the history, personages, and ideology of the movement.
