Near the end of a pretty silly column by Republican consultant Sabrina Leigh Schaeffer, we see this:
In challenging Democratic, anti-war charges, the president and the Republican party are attempting to reestablish the polarization effect by introducing the countervalent information flow back into the media. In this they should be successful since there are plenty of Republicans who respond to elite cues when they are provided.
My emphasis. Am I missing something or is she saying Republicans change their minds when their leaders tell them to?
