Why Are We Surprised at This Presidential Election Cycle?

Many American political observers have taken to describing the current presidential campaign as “the most improbable political season of our lifetimes”  – or something to that effect.  Even the most-respected experts seem “surprised,” “perplexed,” or “shocked” at the strange and unprecedented happenings in both political parties.

But why?  Did we think that in the wake of normalizing same-sex “marriage” – and stigmatizing anyone who disagrees – that we would see this same nation conduct itself reasonably and thoughtfully in the matter of selecting its next leader?

A nation weird enough to discard the definition of marriage held by all nations since the dawn of history is going to display its weirdness in other matters as well.

Why are the nations in an uproar
And the peoples devising a vain thing?
–  Psalm 2:1
