It's flip-flop weather — even in Alaska.

We cranked up our Flip-O-Meter today and awarded two Full Flops:

* Sarah Palin gets one for her 180 on a cap-and-trade program to slow climate change. She was for it before she was against it.

* President Barack Obama gets one for his complete reversal on mandating health care coverage. Yes, the same guy who once bashed Hillary Clinton for the requirement . . . now likes it .
