The Palin channel

I must admit, I almost never pay attention when I hear “Sarah Palin.”  My brain automatically knows that what follows is just absurdity.  Thus, I was only vaguely aware that Palin was starting her own internet channel.  But I did quite enjoy Ian Crouch’s take on it.  Good stuff.

This is the real purpose of the Sarah Palin Channel, which is simply a new, digital act in an ongoing passion play, with Katie Couric in the role of Pontius Pilate and Palin in the self-appointed role of martyr on the cross, paying for the sins of everyone who’s ever pretended to read more newspapers than they actually do.
