Disintegration happens in unpredictable ways

The word of the day is:
dis·in·te·grate  (ds-nt-grt)
v. dis·in·te·grat·eddis·in·te·grat·ingdis·in·te·grates
1. To become reduced to components, fragments, or particles.
2. To lose cohesion or unity: pressures that cause families to disintegrate
3. Physics & Chemistry To decompose, decay, or undergo a nuclear transformation.
To cause to disintegrate.

To become reduced to components, fragments, or particles.  To lose cohesion or unity.  

I will now try this out in a paragraph.
"When I started this series on the journey of the Conservative coalition to self-destruction, I envisaged it taking the form of a rebellion on the part of the Progressive Conservatives from the under iron yoke of Harper.  I never imagined that a key step would involve the Reform wing trying to disintegrate the party by fomenting an attack on a PC hero."
This is quixotic behaviour from the drooling (Oops.  That should read "ruling") party.  It makes no sense for the PMO to be driving wedges within the party as Ignatieff's star is rising.  Like Shelob retreating to her lair after being bested by Sam, more and more the Reformers give the impression that faced with defeat they are seeking to retreat to their western enclave.

Not that I want to stand in their way but I would prefer to see Harper and the rest be trounced in an election.  An election defeat make it that much more difficult to spread their poison in the future.
