Two competing Sarah Palin websites have launched in recent days. The first is called “Sarah Palin Channel,” and it offers subscribers a 24-hour newsfeed of pure, unmediated Palin for $99.95 a year. The second is called “The Sarah Palin Channel” (emphasis ours), and it promises to be “The only Sarah Palin Channel on the internet with a definite article in the address!” (emphasis theirs).
