An Op-Ed by Rosa Brooks in today’s L.A. Times suggests that the litmus test for nominees used to be the abortion issue, but now is torture.

Why can’t we just call this a compromise? The Democrats can have their abortions as long as we get to torture terrorists. I think that’s a pretty fair trade.

Brooks sarcastically asserts that the reason Rudy Giuliani is the current GOP favorite is because of his endorsement of torture, in spite of his pro-choice/pro-gay marriage positions.

She’s exactly right about that. Republicans are willing to do whatever it takes to win the war on terror and Democrats are not.

I hope the new litmus test for nominees is torture, because I could never support any candidate that doesn’t have the guts to do what’s necessary to defeat our enemies.

You can’t fight a wolf if you’re gonna act like a sheep. The Democrats have shown that they’re a bunch of sheep and shouldn’t be trusted to defend this country under any circumstances.

Joe Lieberman was the only Democrat left with any balls and they kicked him out of the party.
