What Do You Call a Flip-Flop?

USA Today‘s front page today (12/2/12) seemed to know– their “Newsline” headline was, “Flip-Flops by Gingrich Fail to Alarm His Conservative Base.”

The piece inside by Jackie Kucinich–which is actually fairly comprehensive–unfortunately bore this headline:

Gingrich Endures Shifts in Policy

Candidate sees no backlash from base

So he’s able to endure himself?
