If you’ve been paying attention to politics for more than one election cycle, you’ve seen the partisan churn in action. When Party X is in power and Party Y is out of power, Party Y will complain about overreach of executive power by Party X and Party X will speak with disdain about the anti-government “nuts” in Party Y. Switch the parties and you’ll see a switch in roles — often about the very same issues. Inconsistency is the mark of the insincere partisan.
