Did You See This? Real Palin vs. HBO Palin

A still of Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin in HBO's Game Change.

In his review of Game Change, Slate's Troy Patterson declared that Julianne Moore had "aced the immodest task of humanizing the media beast called Sarah Palin." Now, even if you missed the movie this past weekend—it was, by the way, the most-watched HBO original movie in eight years—you can decide for yourself, courtesy of this seemingly exhaustive compilation juxtaposing scenes from the movie with the news clips on which those scenes were based. Enjoy.
