"Papal infallibility" wasn't even declared a dogma of the Roman church until Pius IX decided to crown himself omnipotent during the First Vatican Council in 1870
"If anyone therefore shall say that blessed Peter the Apostle was not appointed the prince of all the apostles and the visible head of the whole church militant or that the same directly and immediately received from our Lord Jesus Christ a primacy of honor only and not of true and proper jurisdiction, let him be anathema."
An old song, but it never loses its charm, does it?

I guess instead of counting sheep
RC’s can count their convoluted flip-flops in dogma, rubberized history etc.

That is true, although a similar belief has been held continually since the Early Church. Vatican I specified that the Pope can go against the consensus of the bishops; that was the only thing that some might call an innovation. On the other hand, St. Athanasius went "contra mundum" in 4c. and we all praise him for that.
