McDonnell gets the full Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert treatment for State of the Union response

Rosalind Helderman

They made fun of Gov. Tim Kaine's eyebrow. They made fun of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's ... well, just about everything. And, last night it was Gov. Bob McDonnell's turn.

Yes, delivering the response to the state of the union is pretty much like hanging a sign on your back that says, "Comedy Central: Kick Me." Sure enough, Gov. Bob McDonnell came in for a good ribbing from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert last night.

They both focused on McDonnell's decision to give his response to a crowd of invited Republicans in the Virginia House of Delegates, breaking from past practice to offer something of an alternative state of the union address. For your amusement, or your pique, we offer you the clips below.

Bobby Jindal didn't respond to a State of the Union address. He responded to President Obama's address to Congress on Feb 24, 2009. This was the President's first SOTU.
