DNC Ad Hits 'The New GOP' Sunday Show Guests

No new ideas. No new faces.

As expected, Democrats pounced Sunday night on the Republican Party for trotting out a set of Sunday talk-show surrogates who didn't exactly project political resurgence.

In a Web ad provided to the Huffington Post, the Democratic National Committee pointed to Dick Cheney, John McCain and Newt Gingrich's appearances on the talk-show circuit earlier in the day as the latest example of a party devoid of new ideas or faces.

"Having marginalized themselves as the Party of No - the GOP has nowhere else to turn but a generation of leaders whose ideas and brand of politics have been thoroughly rejected," read an accompanying statement by Communications Director Brad Woodhouse. "Anyone watching television today would have to be excused for asking - is this 1996 or 2009?"
