Julianne Moore won an Emmy for portraying Sarah Palin in HBO's Game Change.

That did not sit well with the former V.P. candidate's daughter Bristol Palin. Why?

"I don't think she's a good interpreter of my mom. I think my mom is way hotter than that," she said. "I think she doesn't have that accent. It's kind of silly, but my mom's awesome."

Sure she is. Do you agree with Bristol (who's been receiving white powder and death threats in the mail) that Sarah's hotter than Julianne? Tell us below, who'd you rather ...

And the Winner is?

Wayne Brady is under serious fire for using Sarah Palin's son Trig and Down Syndrome as a punchline during Comedy Central's Roast of Roseanne Barr.

Brady says he did not write the offensive line in question, but takes "full responsibility" for the joke and says "no malice or harm was meant."

During the roast of Roseanne, Brady said that Sarah Palin hates Jeffrey Ross because he reminds her of "what Trig is going to look like when he's 40."

Trig Palin, Sarah Palin's youngest son, was born with Down Syndrome in 2008, months before she came the Republican V.P. nominee (above).

Even if it was primarily a joke about Jeff Ross, who also courted controversy for dressing like Joe Paterno at the same event, Brady is apologetic.

Wayne issued a statement on Facebook in which he apologizes to Sarah and her family: "At the end of the day I take full responsibility for saying it."

The comedian said that while "I could defend it as a performer, I would rather apologize from the bottom of my heart as a father."

"To the Palins, please know that no malice or harm was meant. To the other families who were touched negatively, I hope you'll be able to accept this apology as well."

He told TMZ when asked about it this weekend that, "It's a roast, but there are people with sensitivities ... and some people were bothered."

One of the political world's favorite rumors received fresh legs after both Sarah Palin and John McCain openly encouraged President Barack Obama to drop V.P. Joe Biden from the Democratic ticket in favor of Hillary Clinton.

McCain and Palin, the Republican 2008 ticket, both brought it up this week after Biden's controversial speech in Danville, Va., during which he told a crowd that a Mitt Romney presidency would "put y'all back in chains."

McCain, Palin, Obama

Although he predicted it would not happen, McCain said it would be wise for Obama to take the Vice President off the ticket and replace him with Clinton.

"I think it might be wise to do that but it's not going to happen obviously, for a whole variety of reasons," McCain said in an interview on Fox News.

"I'm not sure if I were [Clinton] I would want [that] ... I think her ambitions frankly are for 2016 and I'm not sure that would enhance that likelihood."

McCain's former running mate Palin has called openly for a Biden-Clinton swap, though she hopes it won't happen, as it would help Democrats win.

Of the "chains" quote controversy, McCain said Biden "continues to say things that are unacceptable in American politics," and "crossed the line" this time.

"Yet he seems to get away with it because it's always sort of a joke," McCain said.

The Biden-Clinton rumor surfaced earlier this year with Obama struggling mightily in polls and some suggesting it would reinvigorate his reelection bid.

What do you think? Should Obama drop Biden for Clinton?

Former Alaska Governor and V.P. nominee Sarah Palin will not speak at, or even attend, the Republican National Convention, she confirmed in a statement.

"This year is a good opportunity for other voices to speak at the convention and I'm excited to hear them," Palin, the star of the 2008 convention, said.

"Everything I said at the 2008 convention about then-candidate (Barack) Obama still stands today," the 48-year-old professional celebrity added.

Sarah Palin Hair

Palin’s apparent decision to steer clear of the convention marks a stark contrast from four years ago, when she took the presidential race by storm.

Accepting the GOP Vice Presidential nomination, she electrified the party faithful and received widespread praise from previously skeptical pundits.

That also turned out to be her high water mark, however, and her absence from this year's event may indicate what a polarizing figure she's become.

Sources connected to both Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney's camps said she backed out of the RNC altogether after not being offered a speaking slot.

She said she supports Republican presidential candidate Romney and his running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan, but is focusing her efforts elsewhere.

Big Republican names such as Chris Christie, Condoleezza Rice, John McCain, Marco Rubio and even Rick Santorum will speak at the convention.

Romney will officially be nominated on August 30.

While hundreds of thousands partook in Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin repeated her support for the fast-food chain.

In a Fox News interview, the 2008 V.P. nominee defended Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy's decision to publicly express anti-gay marriage views.

Moreover, she called backlash against Chick-fil-A an affront to free speech.

You Betcha

"Well, that calling for the boycott is a real - has a chilling effect on our 1st Amendment rights," Palin told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren.

"And the owner of the Chick-fil-A business had merely voiced his personal opinion about supporting traditional definition of marriage."

"One boy, one girl, falling in love, getting married."

"Having voiced support for kind of that cornerstone of all civilization and all religions since the beginning of time, he then basically [is] getting crucified."

Whichever side you're on in the gay marriage debate, Sarah Palin's interpretation of the 1st Amendment is interesting to say the least.

Dan Cathy certainly can express his opinions, but as the head of a popular company, has to expect repercussions from such statements.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney has some advice for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on choosing his V.P. running mate in August:

Don't pick another Sarah Palin.

In his first interview since receiving a heart transplant in March, Cheney told ABC News that John McCain's decision to pick Palin was "a mistake."

Cheney says he privately offered some advice to Romney and Beth Myers, who is leading Romney's search for a running mate, on the process.

Cheney would not comment on what he told Romney and Myers, but he was typically blunt in his assessment of McCain's decision to pick Palin.

"That one," Cheney said, "I don't think was well handled."

His reasoning is simple but profound: "The test to get on that list has to be, 'Is this person capable of being president of the United States?'"

"I like Governor Palin. I've met her. Know her. She - attractive candidate. But based on her background, she'd only been governor for, what, two years. I don't think she passed that test… of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake."

Former political figure/celeb Sarah Palin stopped by a lucky Chick-fil-A restaurant Friday to "support a great business" slash their anti-gay marriage views.

Palin Tweeted and Facebooked a picture of herself, former Alaska First Dude Todd Palin, at Chick-fil-A, looking happy to be at the Houston-area spot.

"Stopped by Chick-fil-A in The Woodlands to support a great business," is her caption, no doubt in support of Chick-fil-A's anti-gay marriage stance.

Sarah Palin, Chick-fil-A

To be clear, Chick-fil-A's founders have a right to their opinions, and by visiting there and posting the photo above, Sarah's exercising that same right.

Freedom of speech. Great stuff. But to be equally clear, Palin is quite obviously using it to imply her distaste for gay rights without overtly saying so.

Way to be cowardly - chicken if you will - in your bigotry, Sarah. At least pull a Mike Huckabee and declare a full-on Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.

Ed Helms, Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan, Kim Kardashian and others have called for a Chick-fil-A boycott, while Boston banned the restaurant from the city.

Where do you stand on the calls to boycott the chain?

She didn't even last one term as Governor of Alaska. She failed in her bid to become Vice President of the United States. At this point, she's merely a Fox News contributor and the mother of a reality TV star.

So why does Sarah Palin remain so newsworthy? Russell Brand has a theory.

  • Russell Brand at FX Party
  • Sarah Palin Interview Pic

"The reason that Sarah Palin has been so long tolerated is that latent inquisition around her vagina," Brand laughed yesterday during a Q&A session at the Television Critics Association press tour. "People want to f-ck her, don't they? That's why they tolerate the other stuff... The dick don't lie!"

The comedian, whose Brand X talk show has been picked up by FX for seven more episodes, was also asked about the recent Chick-fil-A controversy.

"Didn't Chick-fil-A say that they're racists now? Oh no, homophobic. I get mixed up with the prejudices. I forget who I'm supposed to hate."

We're gonna assume that many Republicans, following Brand's take on Palin, won't be as confused. They likely know where to direct their hatred at the moment.

With Bristol Palin under fire for the recent word choice of son Tripp on the latest episode of her Lifetime reality show, Fox News contributor Sarah Palin has come to her daughter's defense.

"Haters are going to hate," Palin told Salon at an NBC cocktail party on Tuesday, adding of Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp: “I think it’s clever, it’s absolutely real and I’m proud of the girls.”

Palin, Sarah

Despite the presence of cameras, her increased level of fame and the six-figure salary Bristol is banking from the series, Sarah Palin insists the program does not encourage young women to give birth.

"Her show today I think is very positive, it’s very realistic in terms of showing what single motherhood really is,” Palin said. “It’s not like the Teen Mom  — partyin’, woo-hoo! – fun, glamorizing single motherhood."'

We know we say this often, but: WHAT THE HECK IS SARAH PALIN TALKING ABOUT?

Has she ever seen Teen Mom? Debate all you want over whether these girls should be covering magazines and thrust into the spotlight, but that show on its own features nothing but crying children and ugly arguments with boyfriends/parents.

It also depicts teenagers who are struggling to hold jobs and attend classes while trying to raise children... without a stable, ultra wealthy family offering support.

Palin once said she is knowledgeable about foreign affairs because she can see Russia from Alaska. But this may be her most ridiculous statement yet.
