Signposts: “Too Dumb to Fail: A Conversation with Matt K. Lewis On Election 2016”

The 2016 presidential election cycle has been a bizarre and at times infuriating spectacle. Particularly for conservatives, it feels like this election has featured at least as much of the vulgar showmanship of reality TV as a principled conservative worldview. How did we ever get to this point?

In this episode of Signposts I talk to Matt K. Lewis, author of the new book Too Dumb to Fail. Lewis discusses why conservative political discourse has sunk to the lows we see now, and what we can do about it.

Only when we see how lost we are, we can find our way again. Only when we bury what’s dead can we experience life again. Only when we lose our religion can we be amazed by grace again.
