OK, so let's say you're an NFL fan, and you're a republican. If you're a Seahawks fan, you can still hold on to your, "The regular refs are just a bunch of union lefties, trying to squeeze the 'makers' for an undeserved cut of their dough." But what if you're a Packers fan? How do you reconcile the greed-based NFL owners' position of locking out the refs with the fact that your boys took one up the poop-chute last night because your "maker" buddies want to bust the ref's union? Real life sucks, doesn't it? Not that I think this will budge you out of your Ayn Rand fantasies, but this does represent a teachable moment...for the teachable.
