    and one side wants to sacrifice a human, so the compromise is to sacrifice both, in the spirit of bipartisanship (and I'm convinced that if this was a literal and not metaphorical example, there'd be more than a few "Very Serious People" who'd "reluctantly" agree that it's not such an unthinkable idea so long as we make sure to compensate the human's family and did it "humanely"--Swift comes to mind).
