If you want to tune in to former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's new television channel, don't go to thesarahpalinchannel.com.

If you do, you'll get Comedy Central's faux conservative commentator Stephen Colbert, who got a huge round of laughter and applause from his studio audience when he announced on his show, "The Colbert Report," that he had purchased the domain name.

Colbert's website features a photo of Palin and announces, "The only Sarah Palin Channel on the internet with a definite article in the address."  A link goes to a comedy sketch Colbert did about Palin and her misstatements about Paul Revere.

Palin recently launched her web TV channel  — sarahpalinchannel.com, which charges $9.95 a month for access — promising, "Together we'll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media's politically correct filter and things like Washington, D.C.'s crony capitalism. We'll talk about the issues that the mainstream media won't talk about. And we’ll look at ideas that, hmmmm, I think Washington doesn't want you to hear."

Her website features a "national debt" clock, a countdown of how many days President Barack Obama has left in office, and a video demanding Obama's impeachment, in which  Slate quotes her as saying, "Enough is enough from the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis, for me, is the last straw. It makes the battered wife say, 'No mas. That's enough.'"

The site also features family videos of the Palins in their daily lives.

Colbert waggishly said of the site, "It's a safe space where like-minded folks can hear things they already agree with from someone whose opinion we already know.

"Folks, it is 24/7 Palin-tainment streamed right to your phone," he said.

"This is a news channel that really is a lot more than news," Palin said in introducing the new site. "This is a community where we’re going to be able to share ideas and discuss the issues of the day. And we’re going to find solutions."
