Waiting for Sarah Palin? Here she is . . .

After Birth Certificate Day, we could all use a little palate cleanser. So, take a look at this recently released photo of actor Julianne Moore in full Sarah Palin regalia.

Moore as Palin is part of the cast of HBO's "Game Change," an upcoming film based on the book by political reporters John Heilemann and Mark Halperin about the 2008 presidential race. Veteran actor Ed Harris has been cast as John McCain.

Woody Harrelson, Ron Livingston (from "Office Space"), and Sarah Paulson have also been cast in the film, with the role of Bristol Palin going to Melissa Farman.

Still no word on who will be cast as Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton in the film.

Palin was unhappy with the way she was portrayed in the book, asserting among other things that it was "a lie" that she didn't know the difference between North Korea and South Korea.

So who makes a better Palin impersonator? Moore or Tina Fey? Moore has the gestures right, but Fey is a tough act to follow
