Shredded Wheat?

It took me a while to realize that a commercial for Post's Shredded Wheat wasn't a DNC spoof of Republicans.
"Has progress taken us to a better place?
I'd say it's taken us for a ride.
Honestly, what thanks do we owe progress?"
The commercial makes the point that Shredded Wheat is the same cereal it's always been - simple, nutritious, tasty, etc. No gimmicks. The commercial emphasizes that the cereal has been made with "one simple, honest ingredient" -- 100% natural whole grain wheat, since it was created 117 years ago.

The commercial's tagline could be adopted by today's Republican Party:
We Put the 'No' in Innovation.
Here's the Youtube: Shredded Wheat
