wide stance
 n.Note: This term is too new to have a fixed meaning, but in general “wide stance” is being used to mean “hypocrisy.” «You can easily win any argument with a rightwinger now simply by accusing them of “taking the Republican Wide Stance” on any issue when they spew the talking points. The best thing about this counter propoganda is, they handed it to the left on a silver platter.» —“The Republicans Take a Wide Stance” by Walt Starr Daily Kos Oct. 5, 2007.
