(Newser) – For those who don't want to pay $9.95 per month for Sarah Palin's new online TV channel, Stephen Colbert proposed an alternative on last night's Colbert Report: his $9.94 "Angry Echo Chamber," undercutting the "24/7 Palintainment" package by a penny. He was just joking with that offer, notes the Washington Post, but the real punchline came when he announced that he had bought the URL The official URL for Palin's show is Colbert's website description? "The only Sarah Palin Channel on the Internet with a definite article in the address!"

As for the actual Palin channel, Colbert offers this praise: It's "just as good as House of Cards, with even more threatening monologues in the camera."

Regardless of what any of us think personally of Palin or Colbert, Colbert is a hard working man who makes a living bringing humor to some of us. Palin is a quitter who ruined any chance of McCain winning the presidency. Yes, McCain has to own that mistake, but Palin is just a below average intelligence person who will use and justify any means possible to get what she "thinks" she is due. A McCain/Powell ticket would have won and I surely would have voted for them. But Palin forced me to vote Obama. Think about it...........
