Palin's First Flip-Flop: She's Both For and Against that Bridge to Nowhere

Gov. Sarah Palin, this year's version of Dan Quayle, has already contradicted her own record as a fiscal conservative.

The issue at stake is the infamous Bridge to Nowhere, a hugely expensive pork barrel project pushed by Alaska's famously greedy Sen. Ted Stevens. Gov. Palin said today she was against the project.

Too bad they keep records up there in Anchorage, where the daily newspaper has a nice quote from Ms. Palin saying exactly the opposite. Indeed, she is on record in favor of Alaska's infrastructure projects, including the Bridge to Nowhere.

So much for Republican consistency.
