Global Headache

Friday, November 07, 2008


For much of the world, the image of Barack Obama as the president-elect doesn't square with their notions about the United States. It's all resulting in a massive case of cognitive dissonance says Steven Kull, director of the Program on International Policy Attitudes.

Of course there will be cognitive dissonance when Steven Kull does polling designed to promote the perception among academics around the world that the US is coercive toward the world.

As of January 20th that "party line" as it were will no longer be helpful to President Obama.

The Program on International Policy Attitudes has made its name attacking the popular notion of American Exceptionalism. Steven Kull should be intellectually honest and continue his attack despite his ideological preference. Spinning the work of PIPA now that Obama has been elected does an enormous journalistic and academic disservice to journalists that use his polling and academics that cite his papers.
