"The Palin Effect "

Shobhaa De, The Times of India | September 29, 2008

Currently, the US is reeling from the "Palin Effect." ++ The overall demoralization and financial crises damage the collective identity of Americans and that is why voters need to hear that their country is still 'exceptional'. ++ Fortunately, "Palin finds everything 'exceptional', when it comes to America" and gathers a lot of popularity for saying this. ++ Not only the US, but also India face various domestic threats such as terrorism and could use some ego bolstering. ++ Therefore, "India needs a Palin" as well.
