Scott Adams explains exactly why I just give up even discussing politics with people who use the term flip-flop for anything but a pair of cheap, foam sandals:
For those of you who do not follow politics, flip-flopping is what happens when an intelligent person revises his opinion because the situation changes or new information becomes available. Flip-flopping goes by many other names including: rational behavior, thinking, and not being a frickinâ€™ idiot.
And no, don’t expect me to vote this time around, either. None of the inherent flaws in the system that were so glaring the last two elections have been seriously discussed either. If this country doesn’t take it’s political system seriously, why should I?
