Stephen Colbert defined the Sarah Palin Channel, an obvious target for his show, in many ways last night, perhaps most simply as, "It's exactly what she's always done, only — mmm, nothing else."

Stephen Colbert didn't only make fun of the Sarah Palin Channel — which can be found at if you pay the $9.95 monthly charge. He also proposed himself as the channel's primary competition, announcing the "Stephen Colbert's Angry Echo Chamber," which will discuss the important issues of the day, as well as the night, like, "where did the sun go." And all for $9.94.
