Stage Fright

Governor Bob McDonnell used a stage provided by Virginia taxpayers, the State Capitol, to deliver the GOP response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union message. In his short talk, the Virginia governor was surrounded by adoring Virginians of all backgrounds who demonstrated a unique talent at reacting to the "Applaud Now!" cards periodically posted by stage hands. Mr. McDonnell appealed to bipartisanship (not found in the room) by often quoting a founding father of the Democratic Party, Thomas Jefferson.
Exit stage right.
