New DNC Ad Portrays Newt Gingrich as Tea Party Godfather

The DNC must know it’s a ridiculous claim, but they’ve got their reasons:

Who worries the Democratic National Committee after Saturday night’s Republican debate?

For months, the committee has been training all of its rhetorical fire on Mitt Romney, sending out hundreds of e-mails and producing dozens of anti-Romney videos.

But at 1:41 a.m on Sunday, the Democrats sent out a quickly produced Web video accusing Newt Gingrich of being the “original Tea Partier.”

Here’s the ad:

There’s “wither on the vine” once more. It’s 1995 all over again.

That ad would work best only if Gingrich were running in the primaries as a Democrat.

If the Dems really wanted to bring down Gingrich’s standing among GOP voters, all they’d have to do is show this ad over and over again. They must have another motive for tying him to the Tea Party. What could that be?
