It's here! Lock your doors and arm yourselves. Sarah Palin just started her own subscription based television channel and she can definitely see Putin from there. But the idea wasn't hers alone.

It's here, just like Tina Fey advertised all those years ago! Lock your doors and arm yourselves.

Sarah Palin has a television channel.

Sarah Palin is returning to her roots in low-budget television—but this time, she's on the web, the focus is American politics, and she owns the network. The Sarah Palin Channel launched Sunday, asking prospective viewers for $9.95 per month–96 cents more than Netflix–or $99.95 a year. (No word on whether subscribers get money back if Palin decides to stick with the project for only half of that term.)

The cost is the same as GBTV, the web-TV channel run by Glenn Beck, a role model for wealthy media figures who hope to monetize the cult of personality they've built up by expertly playing to the cultural affinities and anxieties of Red on

The grift is on. We've seen that conservatives will always pay for their lunatics to rant and rave all night long so I do imagine she will cash in for a while at least.

But Tina Fey thought of it first.
