To mark 100 days since chairman Reince Priebus released the Republican National Committee’s much-hyped post-election “autopsy,” the Democratic National Committee has released a scathing new video slamming the GOP for still being the Same Old Party.

The video highlights Rep. Don Young’s (R-AK) use of the word “wetback,” Rep. Trent Franks’ (R-AZ) claim that the number of women who become pregnant as a result of rape is “very low,” and Rep. Phil Gingrey’s (R-GA) proposal to teach traditional gender roles in grade school, among the many other signs that the GOP has learned nothing from the 2012 election.

According to a recent Democracy Corps survey, the Republican Party’s damaged brand has left it in serious danger for the 2014 midterm elections. Barring a major and surprising change in tone from the GOP, expect to see a lot more ads like this over the next 16 months.

Signatories include former Navy Secretary and NASA administrator Sean O'Keefe, who served in both Bush administrations, and former Defense Secretaries Chuck Hagel, Leon Panetta, and Ash Carter.
