Anyone who knows anything about professional sports knows that, first and foremost, it's a bottom-line business. Players who put up numbers get paid and players who don't perform, don't. It's really that simple.

So it was amusing to watch the wingnut weeping over Tim Tebow being traded to New York. Whether it was Pat Robertson issuing a fatwa on Peyton Manning or Matt Lewis pretending he knows more about the quarterback position than John Elway — or Sean Hannity saying Elway traded Tebow because he was "shaking things up" — it's been fun to watch wingers display their new-found support for affirmative action.
