DNC Ad Blasts Cheney On Torture, Uses Video Of McCain

The Democratic National Committee has a new TV ad on national and D.C. cable, firing back at former Vice President Dick Cheney’s continued advocacy of torture techniques. The ad says that Cheney’s insistence, “Enhanced interrogation techniques were absolutely essential,” is about as reliable as his past pronouncements that the Iraq War would go well and that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction:

Note that the ad uses a TV clip of none other than John McCain, the 2008 Republican candidate for President, saying that the internal conventions against torture were violated. When was the last time we heard Democrats favorably citing him?
