How To Stay Deluded 24-7

I guess it was inevitable: after telling her minions that virtually every source of information this side of Breitbart is controlled by godless elites who mock their beloved True American culture, Sarah Palin is now making it possible to stay deluded 24-7 (per a report from TPM’s Catherine Thompson):

“Tired of media filters? Well, so am I,” the former Republican vice presidential candidate wrote in an announcement on her Facebook page. “So, let’s go rogue together and launch our own member-supported channel! This will be OUR channel, for you and for me, and we’ll all get to call it like it is.”

The Sarah Palin Channel, described in its formative stages as “a video version of her Facebook page,” costs $9.95 per month or $99.95 for a yearly subscription through Tapp, an online video service founded by former NBC Universal and CNN executives. Active military members can subscribe to the network free of charge.

The channel’s website prominently features a national debt counter and a countdown clock for days left in the Obama administration. Several sample videos, including a video of Palin’s call for the President’s impeachment, are also posted.

Don’t know if there will be salmon-bashing or wolf-shooting video as well. But however egregious it turns out to be, it’s one more sin we can lay at the door of John McCain, who unleashed this long national nightmare just under six years ago.
