I Could Go For Some Consistent Flip Flops

Another thing that annoys the shit out of me about election years: consistently saying the same thing over decades becomes a good thing and changing of one’s mind becomes a bad thing. That’s an obnoxious as fuck assumption. You could just as easily assume the opposite: consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds, change shows the capacity for reflection and growth. Boom. Now your consistent person is a hobgoblin fuck and the changed person is virtuous. In reality, it’s a case-by-case basis. We should question people who have the same ideas over a long period of time. Also, we should question people who too often change their minds.
