We knew she had perfected Sarah Palin's look. Now, in the first Game Change trailer, we see that Julianne Moore sounds just like the Alaskan politician, too.
Moore, 51, has just one line in the trailer – in which she accepts the Republican nomination for vice president in 2008 – but she delivers it in the classic Palin voice, one previously imitated to perfection by Tina Fey.
The movie, coming to HBO in March, also stars Ed Harris as John McCain and Woody Harrelson as his campaign manager.

Did Bristol Palin get pregnant just to spite her mother, Sarah Palin?
That's what her ex-boyfriend – and the father of her 2½-year-old son Tripp – alleges in his new book Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs, according to a copy obtained by the Associated Press.
In the memoir, due out Sept. 20, Johnston, 21, says Bristol was angry when she discovered Sarah Palin was expecting a baby. Instead, she felt she should be having a baby and, according to Johnston, told him in March 2008, "let's get pregnant."

Will Sarah Palin put caloric caution on the backburner to take a bite of fried butter? You betcha!
Hitting the road Friday to resume her One Nation bus tour, America's best-known hockey mom will be stopping at the Iowa State Fair, where she says she's going to chow down on some not-so-nutritious grub.
What's on the menu? "I'm excited to try some of that famous fried butter-on-a-stick, fried cheesecake-on-a-stick, fried Twinkies, etc.," Palin, 47, wrote in an email to her supporters."

The war of words between two of Alaska's best-known families, the Palins and the Johnstons, is heating up again.
Following in the barefoot steps of her brother, Levi Johnston, who last year posed for Playgirl, Mercede Johnston, 19, goes nude in a four-page pictorial in the September issue of Playboy (on newsstands Friday), and slams the entire Palin family in the accompanying Q&A.
Mercede calls her brother's ex-fiancée Bristol Palin a "sociopath," and claims Sarah Palin used Levi as a pawn during the 2008 presidential campaign.

Sarah Palin has become a grandmother for the second time, according to reporter Joe McGinniss, who is writing a book on the former vice presidential candidate.
Palin's eldest son, Track, and his wife, Britta, welcomed a baby girl named Kyla Grace Palin on Sunday night, reports McGinniss, who moved next door to the Palins's Alaska home in 2010 to gain better access to the family.
In May, it was announced that the high school sweethearts were married. The Palin family never officially confirmed Britta's pregnancy, though pictures of her baby shower surfaced on Facebook.
The former Britta Hanson was once roommates with her husband's younger sister, Bristol, in Anchorage, and served as an executive secretary in the governor's office, beginning when her mother-in-law was governor of Alaska. She is currently a nursing student at the University of Alaska.

Looks like there's another Palin on the way!
Sarah Palin's eldest son, Track and his new wife Britta Hanson are having a baby. A Wasilla, Alaska, friend's Facebook page revealed the happy news by posting photos of expectant Hanson surrounded by baby gifts – it was tagged with numerous congratulations.
Track, a 22-year-old Army Reservist who plans to study at the University of Alaska after the commercial fishing season, married his high school sweetheart in a small ceremony in Hatcher Pass, Alaska, in May.
Hanson, 21, is a nursing student at the University of Alaska.

She's clearly the mama grizzly's cub.
Inheriting Sarah Palin's sharp tongue for those she feels have done her wrong, Bristol Palin has choice words in her upcoming memoir for Levi Johnston, the father of their 2 ½-year-old son, Tripp.
In Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far, Palin, 20, rips her ex-boyfriend as "the gnat named Levi Johnston (who's) constantly spreading false accusations against our family" and says he "cheated on me about as frequently as he sharpened his hockey skates," according to the Associated Press.

There was a surprise biker among the throng at Sunday's annual Memorial Day Rolling Thunder ride-along in Washington, D.C.: Sarah Palin.
"I love that smell of the emissions," said the former Alaska governor and recent mother of the groom Track Palin, as she wore sunglasses and a Harley Davidson black helmet, Fox News reports.
The ride, in which thousands of motorcyclists parade down the capital city's Constitution Ave., saw Palin rumbling down the route from the Pentagon to the Vietnam Veterans' memorial.
"How do you wear all this leather and stay cool?" Palin, 47, asked another woman, reports USA Today.

The wedding may have surprised many outside Alaska, but to those who know Sarah Palin's new daughter-in-law Britta Hanson, the marriage to Track Palin seemed almost inevitable.
Here are five things to know about this 21-year-old hometown girl who has longtime ties to both the Palin family and Wasilla:
1. Already lived with one Palin
Last year, Hanson roomed with Track's sister, Bristol Palin, in Bristol's three-bedroom condominium in Anchorage. Willow Palin would frequently come by for sleepovers. "I was scared to live by myself," Bristol told Harper's Bazaar.
