That other crucially-important two-sided contest that faces us this fall

So speaking of the NHL lockout, it occurs to me to be surprised that the {left,right} isn’t using this as an ideological beatstick with which to fustigate the {right,left}.  I mean, if the Goldman Sachs was in the middle of an acrimonious internecine struggle with its day traders and no fractional reserves were being leveraged, the left would be having paroxysms of self-indulgent back-patting.  Similarly, if General Motors was in the middle of a knock-down drag-out labour dispute with its employee union and no SUVs — I mean Chevy Volt hybrids — were chugging off the lines, the right would be utterly insufferable.  But despite pro hockey bearing all the marks of a spinnable issue for both sides — one-percenters working for one-tenth-of-one-percenters to slurp up insanely regressive transfers from the rest of us (from the left) vs. entertainment media elites — foreign ones, no less! — taking oodles of taxpayer dollars in order to cheat the creative destruction of a free market (from the right) — I’ve not heard word one about how the lockout proves (my side) right and (your side) wrong.

Hmm.
