In this note some brief comments are provided on Burmilla and Ryan's Reconsidering The Palin Effect' in the 2008 U.S. Presidential Election. Specifically, Burmilla and Ryan's conceptualization of the Palin Effect and their revised model specification are critiqued. Their findings that Palin exerted an effect on vote choice that was typical for any vice-presidential nominee also stands in contrast to several studies that conclude that Palin's effect on vote choice in 2008 was far from typical.
