Actually, my problem was that I'd chosen a viewpoint character who was 
inflicting the surprise, not one who was receiving it.  He's have to 
learn about the surprise's reception from a news analysis.  No reason he 
can't do that on the rewrite, of course...

Turns out I'm an anally-fixated oedipal paranoid with 
south-of-the-border schizophrenic delusions...  But never mind, I've 
found me the ideal job.  I'm going to run for President!
